“If you can’t write about everything, write about something smaller.”

“Smaller than the universe? What about Earth.”

“Smaller.”

“America?”

“Smaller.”

“Massachusetts?” Pause. “Cambridge? This house?” Pause. “My bathroom? It’s white…”

“Smaller.”

“This towel.”

“Smaller.”

“This square centimeter of towel.”

“Start there.”

“It’s grey like warm slate. There are wispy cotton strands arranged in neat rows, but many have been pushed askew. Some strands end in fine points, stretched from years of use. Others are rounded. It feels like dry moss. It isn’t moving. It’s surrounded by fabric that looks just like it.”

“There’s a lot to say about a towel.”
