Little Red Riding HoodThe morning sun shone brightly down upon the hills as smoke rose from the chimney of the cabin, as the morning dew slowly melted from the ground. In front of the cabin sat a girl, wearing a red coat despite the warm morning, picking flowers and slowly turning them in to a crown. Inside the cabin, someone called for her.
"Little Red!" called the voice. "Where have you gone to?"
"I'm outside!" The girl called back.
"Making a crown of flowers again?" Little Red smiled to herself, admiring her nearly completed work.
"Maybe." She said, as a thin and wiry woman appeared in the screen door behind her.
"Just don't bring it in the house." Said the woman, watching her carefully. "Just don't bring it in the house; I don't want a repeat of what happened last time."
"When the petals all fell off and scattered pollen all on the floor?" she recalled, standing up and completing her crown. "This one isn't going inside, I promise."

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
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
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,
