I guess we are

milk chocolate on salt and vinegar Pringles,
hand-cleared sections on a fogged mirror
scattered at different heights,
cheese melted across knackered chips,
the wings of butterflies,
the smell of a new toilet air freshener,
emergency contacts for a future nightmare,
dust on untouched bookshelves,
names on loft boxes.
