The Latency

That the new thing now?

Month: December, 2014

eat drink stare sleep repeat

I woke up today with
no particular plans
having
gotten through xmas in
one piece

thankful for
that, at
least

no screaming or
approbation
everything calm and
comfortable

came over to the couch
scratched the cat
behind the ears
turned on the stereo
sat down
waited

the sun came
through the narrow
windows

I had some pie
and a couple
of beers

at some point the
doorbell rang
I didn’t answer it

then it was night
it came on fast

now it’s almost morning
and I’m still
sitting here
scratching the
cat
behind the ears
listening to
it purr

waiting

reaction to every possible thing

shut the
fuck
up

pain in the swell

what I’ve mostly got
is the cat
staring at me

country music
and cans of beer

it’s three a.m.

what’d
I miss

every sunset

makes things cooler
for a bit
until it comes up

rising

and rewarms
the world again

you know
this

you don’t need
me to
tell you it’s
going to happen

it will

go outside
and see
it

the rest
is dust
