Evidence of love….

7/15

My dog died 10 days ago.

 

Motel 6, 47.00 for bloodstains on the carpet and cigarette burns on the pillows. Salt water taffy stuck in my teeth, I don’t brush it out because where else is breakfast going to come from.

I never remember how wide the continent is until the end of the first night of the cross country drive when I am exhausted and not even past the first state line.

If Skrap were here I would not be worried about how much weight it would take to break the lock on the door.

EVIDENCE OF LOVE:

Love is the faint tapping on my eyelids until they close, it’s gentle pressure pushing my shoulders into the mattress, it’s the sure sense as I fall asleep that everything is alright, even the everythings that smell like a strangers pee.
