two snapshots

He rolls the dice in his hand and repeats quietly
butthole, butthole, butthole
as a small prayer for good luck with his roll

He stands inches from the tv screen
feet angled towards each other
the right toes resting on the left
intentionally mismatched socks

Narrates a running commentary of what he is doing
in the video game he plays while I sit and watch him
