Chris Crossing- p. 1Hey. I'm Chris. I'm like 11 and my parents sent me on a train to some remote place called Eastleaf.
And I'm definitely not happy about it.
I stopped looking out the window and saw some cat staring at me.
Wait, a cat? He's about as tall as I am, and he's on his hind legs, and he talked.
They put me on a furry train. What is wrong with them. This has to be a joke.
"So what's your name?" The cat asked, coming over to sit across from me.
"Chris. And you?"
Oh, wow, really?
He asked me like a million questions.

of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,

to be made manifest

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,
