A Day In The Life


The garbage truck outside woke me at 5am.
I’ve been up since then,

lying here waiting for sleep to take

me back but I stay awake,

So cruel.

Work at 7am so I get dressed.

I put my wheat toast in the

Toaster. I push the toast down,

nothing happens. It’s

Fucking broken.

I go to work hungry I try

to stay awake while my boss

lectures me about posted notes.

Who cares, I say to myself,

He’s so boring.

I come home from work at

4pm. Nate greets me with a lick

on the hand. I missed you too boy.

The day is almost done and I’m

I get into bed and move the covers

up over my hands. So warm and

quiet. My eyes start to close

and I can feel myself being pulled into

Sleep, finally.
