Your Toothbrush Is Your Anchor

Your toothbrush is your anchor.
Keeping your ship,
proud and clean even in unknown waters,
like this apartment you hate
for its fickle temperature
on the narrow street
where I can never park.

Or maybe it's a flag.
Standing tall in a cartoon character cup,
marking this sink as your own.
displayed proudly before mine,
itself a visitor with hopes
of one day making this sink its home.
