Wait, it’s only Thursday? No, it must be Friday by now. I need to sleep late tomorrow. I need to play with my dog in the park. I need to invite my pals over for dinner and a couple more episodes of “Jessica Jones.” I cannot wait for more days, it must be Friday now, today. Immediately.

    my bubble burst

    I live in a land great
    full of dreams
    but I wait , and wait
    stifle screams
