In that basement we were exactly who we wanted to be,
rock stars and poets, artists and designers.
That basement was our haven
because when we walked up those stairs
we were just teenage kids again
with dreams that were just too big.


She smiles
Laughs
To herself
I watch
Although she seems happy
Happy
What is happy?
She is not happy
He makes her
Yield. Though
Since it is forced
It’s not yielding
It is being demanded of
She smiles so when
He walks
Oh, the way he walks
Such confidence
Such ease
Ignorance
So she smiles
For he won’t notice
While she cooks
She cleans
While she cleans
She cooks
He’s oblivious
She must talk to herself
She thinks, asks
She answers herself
I watch, I see, I look
I clean, I clean, I cook
I must yield
Involuntarily
Be the woman
The lady
The wife
The possession
I am supposed to be
Close my eyes
Cry, no no I don’t cry
Not i
Not me
Why me?
Why not?
Peace
Ignorance
He rubs my shoulders
Whispers it’s time
Time
oh, time
We were once friends
It’s time
To yield
I nod
Ignorance
I turn
Ignorance
I kiss
Ignorance
I kill
Ignorance
