We sit in silence, dark draperies block the sunlight except for little paper-thin lines that rest on the carpet. My eyes heavy I fiddle with my watch, the flexible rubber wrapped snug around my wrist, skin slightly whiter there. I can hear my breathing, hear both of our breathing, slow and rhythmic  and out of time. My timer goes off and I crane my neck, neck muscles tight. A spider climbs along the wall, fuzzy feet climb ging to the spackle drywall, webs soun in the corner, maybe more in the attic above, dusty hideaways in the shadows, he preys off of unsuspecting flys, pouncing like his life depends on it. The chair I sit in is soft and I feel I'm sunk into it, a luxurious trap. Taste of air freshener and books, room smells of covered up dirt and neglect. I remember opening this watch for Christmas--
