ThumbelinaMy name is Sparrow. I am nearing fifty, but I was once a charming young bird with a melodic voice. I had one close friend, and her name was Thumbelina. I will never forget that mythical princess. However, in previous tales, my dear Thumbelina was made out to be a precious gem, but she was far from that. She was sometimes selfish and spiteful, but despite her crude behavior, I was deeply in love with her, and I am here to tell the tale that has been previously twisted about.
Years ago, I lived in a large oak tree outside of an old widows home. She was without child, yet she longed to have a baby with all her heart. She was a kind and lonely woman with a heart big enough for anything and everything. One night while she slept, I sang sweetly into her ear and told her to ask a fairy to provide her with a child.

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,

and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter

bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest

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,
