Smoke Rising: Chapter 5
Zeph wanted to sleep at Zena's side, but Shortfang had chased him out of the medicine cat's den and instead brought him to what he had to assume was the elder's den. It lay about half way down the camp from the medicine cat's den. It was recessed further back into the rocks, and made of a couple sturdy rocks being much more cave-like than the medicine cat's den was, and there were a couple of dips in the ground filled with soft nests. He cleared an empty dip in the cave floor, assuming the other nests were taken, and laid down, feeling a spike of jealousy for the mossy nest he knew his mate was lying on. The sun was starting to fall on the horizon, but Zeph wondered if the other cats wouldn't mind him going out to gather bedding.

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.

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."
