Tidal Acceleration

With every snap, crackle, pop your first thought is not that you left the turntable on but that your turntable is haunted. When you finally get up to check, you forget which way the switch sways to turn on and off.

Halfway to town, it hits you he won’t be there.

Mistletoe is a parasite that stays green through the winter. The tides cause friction against the earth’s rotation. You and the others haunt the house for hours, passing through Wisteria glass and luminaria.

A whiskey neat and four empty streets later: the loud lock, the empty apartment, a single lamp left on in the living room.
