puzzlement, bordering on alarm

Looking down the cue, it’s a straight enough deal. Red ball eight inches from centre pocket, cue ball about two feet away. Clear shot, no obstacles. There’s the satisfying sound of thwack, click, thump – but I was hoping for a plonk. I can’t seem to peg what it is, but I just haven’t been able to make a shot on this table. The last one had a roll to the far right pocket and the lights had shorted out, but at least I knew what was going on. Now I’m clueless and about three balls away from a pants-ing.

I shut off the car in the driveway, emotions undercover still jumping between bitterness, anger, frustration, defeat and anything between. It’s been days now and I tire of the way that it clings to my mind like it was the roof of my mouth.

this is what you want
