How I Became BlindA most curious thing happened to me after I woke up one day and saw my brother - He was dyed in purple from head to toe, cut off only by his white shirt and jeans. The colour purple peeked out from the slit between the shirt and the jeans; thus I dismissed the slight possibility that it was by some mutation of the sun, unless it spread overnight, for he was of perfect normalcy just the day before.
The others were just as peculiar when their figures met my eyes during breakfast, all colours on full display. Even if there were similar colours between them, let us say for example, purple, they were a variation of purple, some so concentrated it bordered on being black. In fact, I think it was arguably black. All in all, there were no two people of the same shade.
This was not a prank pulled by amateurs during Halloween. No, I sensed it immediately while I set eyes on my dear brother just now; this was the real thing. This was not Devil's trickery, this was Truth itself.
I tried to be subt
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,
