Safe

June 2, 2010

The television emits a soft glow onto our pale skin. The blankets are matted beneath us as if our bodies were iron pressing linen. I drew the blinds 4 hours ago in an effort to keep the outside world out of our cocoon. This cocoon is safe. If I could lacerate my chest open in a lateral movement I am fairly certain wind and leaves would pour out. There is a wind of peace in this stagnant, dim lit room.
