His computer was placed in the corner of his cubicle, two desk panels meeting at that corner to form a V.

Items that were important to him — the picture of he and his wife at their wedding, pictures of the boys in their Little League uniforms, papers that needed his immediate attention — were kept close to the computer in an area relatively clear as compared to the miasma on the outer edges of the desk. It was as if a large object had been thrown in the general area of the computer, with the weightier/more important material remaining closer to the splash zone, the lighter and more abundant material being thrown farther.
