Unfolded, with a crease down the middle, between its two mattresses, my old couch looked more like an open book than a bed. My sheets traditionally ironed (in accordance with some antiquated Soviet mandate) by my occasionally wheezing mother, I felt preemptively guilty for every wrinkle that I knew my clumsy body would impose on it should I lie down, apparently unable to stay still even in my sleep. My socked feet in front of me, my scrubbed clean hands still damp, tired, I sat just beside it, resting my head against its side. I could do worse than my old room, I knew, but I couldn’t help but squirm on the cold parquet underneath my buttocks, anyway.
