Shinagawa Skyscraper

Clouds ripple over the mirrored surface of a Shinagawa skyscraper. Her oiled legs glisten as they cross. I smell coconut and chlorine. Hear the hum of a pool filter click on in the heat like a bright-red-devil’s embrace.

She says . . .

“He keeps me out in the world: I talk in run-on sentences, dance a tarantella, drown in waterfalls. Otherwise I would fold in on myself like bent paper in a tiny origami box.

I know the rules. . . I know the recipe for happiness. But what does that word mean. Helpless and vague like an anime puppy. Nothing concrete to pin it down.”

A sweat bead inches its way down my back. I imagine her mouth tastes like peaches. I say, “I don’t hawk a paint-by-numbers life. Some bent things are worth it. Go into debt for it. Steal a diamond for it. Take a year off and breast feed it.”
