The label

While rummaging through my desk, I found the last label my father wrote for me. School started in January that year. He died a few months later. It’s uncanny how similar our handwriting is.  Blurry and frayed memories (much like the label) of long-lost routines. The rustle of brown paper and smell of new books.
