I hold the selfie stick, and my phone clipped to the other end flashes. I take the phone off the clip and take a look at the picture. It’s me standing in a dimly lit room, my back visible in the dusty mirror. I forgot to smile, and I also notice my unmade bed in the corner of the picture.
I think of sending it to someone, but I’m not sure who to send it to. I try to think up a title, but I can’t think of anything. I stare into my own eyes, and wonder why they look so red. I put the phone down and look into the mirror. I wonder why my eyes are so red.
I take the selfie stick, clip the phone on the end, and try again.
