Wide Window Shades

She’d stripped and washed it all—the sheets, pillow cases, the pajamas she’d worn. Washed everything twice just to be certain there was no trace. Not one hair of his left on a pillow case, not one scent of him coming back to her like a slap. The bedding was strung up on a line in the backyard. She’d had to hunt for the line—normally she just threw her wet laundry into the dryer, but his time she wanted it to hang. She wanted the wind to whip through the flannel, to pull him out.
The naked pillows she’d thrown against the wall after tearing the cases off, her eyes blind with tears, something thick and hulking lodged in her throat. She wouldn’t sleep there that night, with or without the sheets. She wouldn’t sleep there for days.
She stood in the room, her bare feet burrowing into the carpeting, one big toe on top of the other, her arms crossed, fingernails biting into her elbows.
Next would be the picture of Wrigley Field that he’d taken and matted for her, even though she found baseball boring and had told him so. He gave it to her as a gift, as though there was nothing else in the world she could have wanted. It would come down. And the paper shades, too. They had been his idea to keep the sunlight out. But she liked the sunlight and didn’t mind waking to it. And the shades, dark mauve and mottled, reminded her too much of clotted blood.
She shook her head, her nails digging deeper into the dry flesh of her elbows. She was getting it wrong, already revising. Whose idea had it been to buy the shades? Hadn’t she mentioned on some Sunday morning, when all she wanted to do was sleep in, that the sun had been piercing? Hadn’t she hid from it under the pillows?
She kicked the pillows, as if in answer, and then sat down hard on the floor. Her tailbone stung. She pulled her knees to her chest and rested her face on her legs, looking between them to the flesh-colored carpet. The room smelled of him still, despite her best efforts, and that could not be fixed. She had opened the windows wide for hours, yet he was still here. Would stay here until she got it all straight—the reasons why he left, the reasons why she let him leave. She’d breathe him up from the carpet to the ceiling until the scales tipped one way or the other, or until time had done its plodding best at dulling even the brightest mornings.

through a very dirty United Express window. strategically placed dirt spots make it look cleaner than it was
I try to get windows on the shade side of the plane, manually focus, and shoot wide open to minimize the crap on the window. Some times it works, sometimes it doesn't.
