1. Jack-o-lanterns that wrinkle inward to become toothless, soft faces
2. The one red oak leaf that clings to its branch as if it could withstand winter’s icy breath
3. Chili that simmers in a deep silver pot on the back burner while two dogs lay at the base of the stove
4. Dust dancing in the sunbeam that cuts through the kitchen window
5. How her boyfriend’s hair covers his blue eyes as if it were armor for his thoughts
And your fragments are…..?
