Once, I Was Asked Why I Stayed (#1)

The necklace

around my neck

hands

or curse words slipping

 

across a Pine-Sol floor

I should’ve cleaned better                                    

like dishes

 

slamming against a wall

the muzzle

chilling my temple

an empty freezer

expired chipped paint

over a patched hole
