Acoustics

Cleaning the dirt off of door frames with dampened paper towels just to witness all the build up over time. It takes drops of blood on the white floor to stop her from just simply leaning against the mirror. There is no one here, and the sounds of footsteps echo against the drywall even though […]

Dark Ride

There’s a dream she had every once in a while, where for some reason she’d find herself on rails.

Saturation

They think about the burning house, and the bus ride where they scared each other on accident. They poured into the building over top the paved sidewalk that was surrounded by mud made by the rain in all its laughter. Ugly paintings become regretful reminders and age to look much worse over time. The same […]
