Totally self focused/drowning in the self and whining about the water being tepid/lay this side on your mental turntable and feel the flood of misery/loss/longing/ discovering that your self reflection is like a drunk looking into a puddle of clear vodka vomit/maybe I’m overreacting.

But I’m shining a flashlight on this corner of minor personal darkness.

Light from that place of darkness/evil defeated and sent reeling back to its cave for once/poems my Mom can read/a recharge and a rebirth/calls from my therapist saying everything is okay/friends and lovers/a startling lack of cynicism/sleeping well for once/a feeling of life coursing through everything/the demons beaten back from the frail door of my sanity/a car crash averted/finding change in your pocket when you’re short thirty cents for cigarettes/the records on the turntable enveloping you in safety/in sunshine for a moment that lasts just long enough.
