Definition
a tiny piece of anything
  • The clothes in the closet, which were even then out of date—too narrow and high for the postwar "New Look"—intoxicated us with a sense of possibility, not for us, but for our mother, lost possibilities to be sure, but somehow still present when we entered the closet, closed the door, and sat down cross-legged in the mote-filled sunshine of the oval window.
