Day 8

This is what you think about the most when everybody is breathing around you, the scritch-scratch of the nurse’s pen in her anatomy workbook is just barely audible if you crane your neck a little and focus on it, focus past all the breaths, soft ones and noisy that you checked out on your last foray when you thought that the best possible way to deal with this insomnia is go around and watch other people dream in the rooms where the lights are still on, albeit softly, and the small shriveled faces, with their bulbous noses and long lobes, are opened and half-ajar with drool hanging off of their tongues like string from a tattered quilt—faces re-living other lives, innocently, one might think.
