Life During War Times

by Matt DeBenedictis

Talking Heads hummed.

The room grooved with the up and down voice of Byrne.

He thinks. She hums. Tongue. Tongue. Finger. Repeat. Rotate.

Her skin rose delighted, transforming to colors still blind to a man.

A collapse.

A towel and a shared glass of water before they return.

She finds the keg.

He heads to roof smokes in hand.

“Was it worth it?”


“Will anything change?”
