The StainThe Stain
By Morgan Boes
I can't get out. The door is in the living room, and that's boarded up. I've tried to seal the doors as best I could, but I can hear it in there. It's shuffling around, spreading its vile presence through my apartment till I have nowhere else to go. I panicked, and in a moment of terrified stupidity, I've left myself with no escape route. I can hear it scraping those arms across my floor, feeling its way around until it can find a weakness. The wound in my thigh hurts terribly, there is a red streak coming under the door from where I pulled myself out of the room. My leg is going numb.
I should probably go back and start at the beginning. You, dear reader, you must know this legacy, for I am in the last hour of my life. You must know that I have found what lurks in the dark corners of the Earth.
It begins two months ago. I'm young and restless, and in my insatiable desire to be a writer, I must find a sanctum where I can do my work. It's my time to show
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
