Spring Cleaning | Sharks In The Shower


We left every room in disarray, 

clothes thrown over chairs – 

dirtied outfits awaiting better days.

Our nightstands heavy with dogeared 

paperbacks, each page a reminder 

that our love withered months before. 

The kitchen was a dive bar. Counters

cork-cluttered, sticky with botanicals.

I felt as useful as a barfly.

Such a mess we made,

falling out of love. I searched

for memories in every room.

Cleaned out closets

Shook open drawers
