The Imp (so we shall refer to the omni-entity that is the "Imp of the Perverse" for the remainder) is an oft-misunderstood motivation of mankind. Phrenologists, devotees of a popular "science" in the nineteenth century who believed that the shape of one's skull dictated intelligence and personality, delved into the prima mobilia (prime motive) of mankind and assigned the motives of man to specific regions of the brain. But while partitioning the mind into areas of such as: impulse to propagation, sense of cunning, ambition, vanity, metaphysical perspicuity, valor and self-defense (there are twenty-seven in zones in all but we need not examine that topic at the current juncture), they failed to recognize the Imp as having the power to exert as great an influence upon man as any of the aforementioned twenty-seven attributes, solely upon the grounds that they could not fathom the need for such a motivation as the perverse.

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.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
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,
