Thoughts from a near-fire disaster (wip)

August 28, 2008 at 4:47 am (Uncategorized)

awake at 4:30
on a Thursday morning.
the fire alarm
needs a new battery
and so will I,
later.
sleep should have immediately
returned, but there were
cryptic bostonian surveys to read,
treason to troll,
and celebrity gossip to wallow in.
because everything exciting happens
after 1 am.
including false alarm fires.
“if its not ok, then
it’s not the end”
is a
(sometimes)
bold faced lie
perpetuated by people like me
during more secure
self righteous
overly Pollyannatized moments.
There are times
when it’s over
(my sleep)
(my battery)
and it’s certainly
not ok
with
me.
