Quiet times restored

Quiet times restored

Courtesy Minh Jae Lee
She jumped suddenly
from the comfort of the couch
wisps of hair flaring

The couch burst alit
Once an abode of pleasure
it now spouted flames

Her hair gushed red streaks
The warmth at her temples hurled
sinister designs

All contentment gone
her face erupted fury
as eyebrows belched fire

Blankets of water
trickled down path of relief
on flanks that spewed rain

Quiet times restored
her throat emitted strange notes
she regained her poise
