Unwanted Party Guest

Unwanted Party Guest

She tangled herself in the shower curtain. 
The music downstairs 
hit the ceiling and leaked 
through the cracks in the corners  
of her eyes.

Smokey eye shadow 
smudged on the plastic sheet 
that became a coffin with a heater. 
Each breath was another notch
on the dial.

Until flesh met wood making gun shots. 

"Hey, are you done in there?"
Someone yelled from the 
other side of the door. 

She unwrapped herself, 
slowly, hesitantly
peeling off the last fold.

She wasn't ready.
