Not His Fault, Never His Fault
He could've been sleeping, but he wasn't sure. Maybe he was close to sleep, or maybe not, but all of it sounded and felt too real to just be a dream. A familiar, female voice whispered his name in his ear, but his eyes felt too heavy to open. Maybe he'd been knocked out? Was he just in a fight? He wasn't sure. No...wait. No, he wasn't just in a fight. He'd just finished killing a demon and exacting the revenge he had longed for for the past five years.

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

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,
