Itchy fingers


Why is it too early when it’s early but never too late when it’s late?

They can’t quarantine your dreams,
not yet anyway.

Routine,
light
write
eat
write
light
off.

Pyjamas are the new sportswear for jogging around the bedroom because you don’t want to go out there.

Old is when you think you’re going down
only to find it’s gas escaping, but nobody
likes to talk about that.
