Immutable

No matter how the louvered slats are positioned on searing-hot days, the sun will not be banned. As it tracks through the darkened house, it settles for a few minutes here and there, etching rainbow-tinged daedal designs. By late afternoon, it lands as a slash across the dining room floor. I pause: step on a line / break your mother’s spine.
