Purely Decorative

by Michael Mira

She left a note on the dining room table that's only ever used for Thanksgiving dinner. It was the table's only purpose in its mundane existence, and what an amazing coincidence that she placed the letter on top of it. You never had an impact in my life, the note said. Ever since the day I found that little note, I began eating my breakfast on the dining room table. It lost its gloss and in exchange found a purpose for its existence. Maybe it wasn't a coincidence after all.
