berry red

silent save for agonized scream
from cracked lips
eardrums shatter at her
supersonic 7- Eleven cry
and stains form on the table
dinner was lovely cutting into
a broken heart and licking the wounds
as they appeared
and faces peel back as plastered hands
get wrapped with white boxing tape
and grapple for a point to make
between two sharp mountains,
hollowed insides echoing
crass thoughts burn like ash, embers
as they hit the carpet and
the house is awash in flames
burning a bright blue
so cold it stings as much as
dropped conversations that never mattered
and the screen flashes a warning
asking
''are you okay?''
and falling to pieces alongside the glass,
the furniture shouldn't be speaking
and the world should be still
as a bottle of berry red nail polish
falls off the shelf,
and is swallowed up without thinking.
