Things Shouldn't Be So Hard — Kay Ryan


Whitespace_20h_x_119
A life should leave
deep tracks:
ruts where she
went out and back
to get the mail
or move the hose
around the yard;
where she used to
stand before the sink,
a worn-out place;
beneath her hand
the china knobs
rubbed down to
white pastilles;
the switch she
used to feel for
in the dark
almost erased.
Her things should
keep her marks.
The passage
of a life should show;
it should abrade.
And when life stops,
a certain space—
however small—
should be left scarred
by the grand and
damaging parade.
Things shouldn't
be so hard.

Splinter Tweezers

Zz

Up to now I've used Tweezerman's iteration, but they're rather expensive ($12.50).

I had my Crack Research Team®© drill down and see if they could find a cheaper alternative.

Success!

Exploring iFixit they unearthed the beauty pictured up top.

A snip at $4.95.
