I want to read it

how you got from one day to the next

it’s the closest I’ll ever be

to feeling control

in this ocean of unknowns.

Did you wake with blurry eyes from too much screen time,

rewatching a comedy special you saw with 2 friends half a decade ago.

Did you ache a little thinking of how old you are becoming?

Write it all

word for word.

I want to know about the dullest of days

when sadness didn’t interfere, nor joy

when nothing profound emerged

when you felt stupid trying.

Write about how you survived the lull

or didn’t.

I’d like to know how you got from one day to the next.

It’s the closest I’ll ever be

to feeling control

in this ocean of unknowns.

Would you?
