Day 199 – Onset

Day 199
1:10 am

Onset, there go the days

Used plugs
Grey matter
Spoiled geoduck bits

A pillow where she can rest her head

Old oil in a sticky can
Clean socks in a pile
Dirty futon

A dent in the couch she can not defend

Light flashing
Oil dripping
Something like a metal wire sounds like it’s dragging

Evenings trump daylight, the first of morning never ends

Pores, huge
Bags of prominence
Dry skin, ruddy and red

Just when she thought the room was clear, there it is again
