I sit watching my own flesh and blood

with her burned straight hair, and foot long skirt

slip out of my car into the foreboding house, void of any light,

the broken lamplight on the corner making it so.

Slip

I happen to glance upon a piece of dark blue glass,

beautiful, until I realize it will now be filled with ice

and tainted by smoke, making a black film on the clear surface.

Light

The hell burning flame, protruding out of a small device lights the god-forsaken

weed and secrets its poisonous litter from bowl to bowels of this strange glass beast.

Sputter

Gurgle

Inhale

The world is new with overemphasized senses, but where, in this new world, is my sister?
