this ain't a scene, it's an arms race

my life isn't my life,

it's a series of assumptions

made on limited information.

it's a day on which

everyone i know

goes missing.

and while i can't see

how it's possible

that a number of infinite things

can become me,

i can neither be

who i was this morning.

and this, hun,

is an arms race,

with the waves receding

off the shore, and 

oh, i'm so tired,

close my eyes and float away.

The End
