In Red Dust, Ch.1“I wonder what it is Gumball's called us over here for.” Fionna said, leaning against one of the many gingerbread pillars of the Candy Kingdom Castle's main hall. She and Cake has been waiting for about a good ten minutes for the prince, lacking their usual excitement for an adventure or a task. Fionna had droned on numerous times about the tediousness and boredom of Gumball's missions, how they would usually compose of simple drop offs, collections, and body-guarding without a single sliver of danger or risk. Most of these missions never even went outside the Candy Kingdom, always confined to the safe, fluffy borders of the prince's familiar country.
Fionna imagined having to delivering packs of sugar out towards the outer settlements, or having to help him decorate for another special occasion or...oh Gob, getting the fluffy kids out of the thick-sap tree again.

five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.

and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter

bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest

expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
