EARTHQUAKE




An invisible bully shakes me awake.  My baby!  The dark the heat the light streaming in from the streetlight the same as when earlier I fell into bed exhausted.  On the landing outside my bedroom I listen for a cry from my sons. Time shifts. They’re gone!  Grown up. In my office, the computer monitor flashes its cry for help.  I go to its aid.
