You Are Here

You are here, at the cusp of adulthood, the key is in your hand for 21C Autumn Lodge.
He is there, teetering on the edge of maturity in an adult body, a coffee in hand, a dog by his side and the world on his tongue.
For the love category of the Christmas Competition 2017


19. And they ignored it


And they ignored it

Even though they truly

Knew what it was

That they were ignoring.


They went back to their apartment

With wrapping paper

Under their arms

And an eclipse in

Their eyes.


They were clueless

But they were together.


And they put music on

Bobbing to it but not dancing to it yet.

They wrapped all of their presents

But the ones they bought for each other.


They wrapped each other in ignorance

And cello tape.

He became a mummy of green wrapping paper,

A Slytherin

Made out of Christmas spirit.

She became transparent,

Made out of more cello tape than skin.


And they threw paper balls at Apollo

Who would not rest by their feet

because he was too excited 

for what he felt between 

the two of his humans.


The snow still fell

And the apocalypse still raged outside

As life paused for a little while longer.


They however did not feel it

Because an apocalypse was a home.
