Static has a smell when you lift quilts from blankets

Static Has a Smell

Static has a smell

when you lift quilts from blankets

and sheets fall,

like metal,

hard against the body and singing scents

of copper,

or maybe humanity,

rubbing deep and ripping apart.

Sparks shine to make the creatures

dance as shadows in the seam.

Loch sheets

falling in the deep sea

of lightning and rain.

Slick. Slap. Ah.

Sweat. Smack. Hah.

Static has a smell

until it doesn't any longer

and sheets stay untouched.

Unstained

when we don't live in them

any longer.

The music stops.

Feet shuffle on hardwood.

Unscuffed carpet pops.

Slick. Slap. Uh.

Slip. Swap. Oh.

Jerky wrapped feet

clap the ground.

Hair stands on end.

Each lock smells like lavender tide pods,

bacon, and.

Static has a smell.
