WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY

LA FRERE

Novelty had long
Ceased to choke me
When I had
Settled quietly
In the metro
In the trees
Of Luxemburg
In the cobbled
Streets worn
With countless feet
The angels and nymphs
Cupid and Diana
Stoic carved in
The face of homes
Lining the corridors
Passing strangers
Velvet eyes
Looking quick
Caught the gaze
Of my beating heart
The tender wind
Of conversation
That washed
My ears like
Waves on the shore
Of your gentle sea
Lover’s tongue
You whispered
Without words
You loved me
My anxious spring
Has bloomed
I belong to you
Hold me in your
Arms of stone

LA FRERE

my pleading eyes.

my veins freeze

icy blood

tearing through coronaries




May Day

'Hope, you don't have to use it on your wedding night.'

She handed the pistol to Hope, right after the vows, right before the reception.

'I'm just kidding, darling. Don't worry. He's a good man. You did well sweetheart. He's a good man. You'll be fine.'

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
