All is calm
Like a lake in heaven
In an instant
His anger flares
Like toast forgotten under the grill
Fear shakes through her
A single look
A look that feels like a dentist drill
The smile of a man
Whose mind is not smiling?
Teeth jangling in her mouth
Like a pocket full of loose change
Her eye’s glowing
Two plums in a bowl of cream
Her face like a lost battle
Her feelings cold
As the ashes of love
There is nothing to separate her days
Like raindrops on the window pane
They run together
Then trickle away.
