Tour of My First Apartment

by Alexia Ruggles Brown

Here is my first apartment. This is where my boyfriend and I made a pretend home, but didn’t make love. This is where we ate, here at the couch, and stared at the TV. This is where I stashed the wine bottles. This is where I gave up. This is where I lay empty and weak as he yelled from the hallway that he wanted me gone.
