  • I heard news this morning .
    I'm not ready for this.
    I'm not capable of understanding it yet.

    Please I need a sign.

    & on the couch sat the loud scream.
    "Adjust, adapt, be good. Good is good."

    This isn't real
    This is not happening
    This is not a pillow of wisdom

    Yet here I am, consoled by the pillow that shouted good things at me.
