Evidence of love….


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.


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.
