Prologue: Severe Storm WarningTropical Storm Prima had advanced to Challenger Island in earnest. The storm's severity made 'in earnest' mean high winds and enough rain to get in the way of even Hoenn-centered breeder, Ruby “Aby” Akai. She was flat on the ground and had to keep a hand above her eyes to keep the rain out. Behind and off to the side, a concerned female Volcarona turned away from the small crowd of Cacnea clumped together below where she was hovering.
Aby was focused instead on the three Cacnea huddling together at the far end of the rock overhang she was peering under. They were far enough back that she couldn't reach them even if she had been willing to risk getting attacked by the wild Pokémon's needles.

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.

bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest

expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
