Pain is a gift.

When you were boys we ended every dinner cooked outside on the grill by toasting marshmallows. One day last year I found the perfect sticks at the supermarket. How could I not think of you? Long dowels with pointed ends wrapped in a plastic bag, despite their intended purpose they were made just for getting the marshmallows past the lip of the kettle deep towards the orange and grey coals.
I bought them, brought them home. Even though I live alone. 

They sit, on top of my fridge, out of sight. But when I do catch a glimpse of them you’re with me, even for just a moment.
