Vacuum
Brooks Rexroat

     My neighbor only vacuums her apartment when she’s about to get laid. I hear that machine buzz through paper thin walls and know it’ll be an evening of moans, clicking bed slats, a touch of arguing afterward. She’s vacuuming right now, while I stare at my own dust-laden floor.

     I was taught to share and to prove the point will share this personal story. My family is a family of sharers, they always have been—cars, clothes, books and the like; but I didn't offer to share my husband with my sister no matter what she says.
     Nuh uh.
