Broke

Bills. They stacked up like a child’s art project on the kitchen
table, each stamped red with the word “overdue.” The house was
crumbling down, the wallpaper peeling off every panel. The walls
trembled as the couple screamed at each other. Blame flew like
household objects; lamps, chairs, and plates.

They stormed off in a huff to the same bedroom, facing away from each
other, their faces too hot and hearts beating too hard to sleep.

So they stayed awake, until the sunlight streaked in through the
broken blinds and the couple was ready to start the routine over
again.
