She woke me up
Me: snoozing through my twenties
She sounded the alarm right at the end of them
She shook me awake
She told me
‘Your mind –
It’s a good one
You should
Use it’
And then
She left like she had never existed
I sent her a message
I said:
‘Are you dead?’
She didn’t reply
I never had her anyway
I never had her anyway

I wondered:
What now?
As I sat with my
Chronically confused
Half opened mind
What now?
