A Small Heater

———

A small heater
Electric
Under my writing desk
Idle
Sitting since last winter
 
Now turned on
Emits faintly
Odor, smell … fragrance?
Provoking a sudden loneliness
Why?
 
Some hidden memory
Disturbed, awakened
Childhood in Edmonton, perhaps
Dad’s old 40s car heater
Our own first apartment
