PrayerGirl1's '09 Entry
"Miss Mona, what are you doing?" Venus De Milo asked as Mona Lisa hung greens off the stairs leading to the upper part of the lair.
"I'm decorating the lair for Christmas." Mona told her happily. "I thought I should get started seeing as how it's December 22nd. I haven't had a chance to do so what with all the foot and dragon activity." She secured the greens then jumped down to join Venus on the ground. "You do know what Christmas is right?" Mona asked her walking over to gather more greens.
Venus walked with her and decided to help. "Yes I have heard of it, but Chung-E and I never celebrated it." Mona gave her a face that said 'really?' so Venus added "But I always wanted to."

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
