Breakup

by Stephanie Bee

In daylight it is unmentionable. At night, the memories disintegrate into a fine, black soot; a gritty blanket of powder that blurs the lines of history. Only in dreams will I allow myself to look back on it. I was the Little Boy on August 6th and he was a sleepy town. There was that terrible moment of silence both before and after. Out of love he never asked me to look at the damage I caused.
