Day 1: Concerned about things
About the shape my pillow takes
when it is not new anymore when
I have molded it for good
with compulsive structured sleeping habits.
About the scent my hair leaves
on the pillow over and over
so I smell it every night
before I put my head there.
About the vulnerability of my armpits
and leaving them exposed
to the sleep gods or whatever
so I keep my arms tight at my sides.
And about being awake
when no one else is awake which means
I must take it back
by going to sleep when they are all awake.
