I'm taking controlYour wife stood in her studio
a paintbrush in one hand
the pole of her IV stand in the other.
You remember how she stood that morning -
she wasnt wearing any shoes
She had her easel by the balcony doors
and she stared out into the woods beside your house.
not knowing you were watching she sat the brush down
and lifted a pair of scissors that she kept around
and cut off her long black
without even flinching
you gasped and she turned slowly to you
and as you fell to your knees
a tear slipped down her cheek
into an uneven smile on her mouth
and she laughed
that weak laugh you never wanted to hear.
and then she whispered
through the hospital green of her studio
"I'm taking control"
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
