Daughter-in-Law
Emilia comes in tiptoeing
inside Tim's room with blue wallpaper
and dead orchids on the nightstand,
while on the living-room's sofa,
alarmed at what her son could do,
Maud acts as if she sleeps,
snoring even.

Emilia, bumps into the dresser
knocking down knickknacks on the rug
unsure of what to do with her hips
smelling of another man,
while on the living-room's sofa,
Maud acts as if she sleeps,
snoring even.

Emilia slips inside the bed,
spilling lies on Tim's sheets
louder than anything on the big-town scene,
and Tim turns to her in barricaded pain,
while on the living-room's sofa,
Maud acts as if she sleeps,
snoring even.

Prompt: Create a tense mood with the poem.
