i was delirious, i clung to the stretcher

me this last week without sleep.
i'm fading but ridiculous.

if you have to stay, i'll be on the water

every night for over a week, i've been having these dreams. they are about as real as dreams can be without being reality, and i wake up at four every morning without fail.

my sleep is rocky, and my dreams are almost nightmares.

so i have these little interludes in my nights of words and music.

no matter the weather

i think my body is filled with some dense substance that makes me feel night quite human.

the side-effects of this include an inability to sleep while creating an unshakable fatigue.

what if i kept going?

i'm having an unrequited love affair with the world.

i see what i had not known

the morning feels like california. cool and bright, with the sound of cars and coffee in the air. i'll just imagine that i'm in san diego for a bit. that if i leave this room, mare will give me a cup of coffee, and i'll sit outside and pet jolie and watch the ocean. i'll walk to the yacht club and sail and, on the way back, stop in at red's and eat a bagel and sit. that would be nice. i'd like to go to san diego.
