The Mess in the Basement

As I sit

in the cool basement

eyelids open and shut spontaneously

a black iPhone screen seems a pool worth diving into

poems show themselves in my mind

a belly breath brings endorphins

deep sighs echo from my large pup sleeping

like a dam breaking

joy stings and rushes my sinuses

overwhelmed by detail

I welcome the connection to cluttered life

the bell ends it

and I write

–April Resnick
