I can’t focus right now but who can blame me? by Sofia Fey

There’s no way to throw days out the window but shouldn’t I be listening to footsteps? Poets translate intricate details & immortalize them on the page well at least I used an ampersand That’s another thing I’m not supposed to say “I” this much but I need to be in I right now I’m just trying to keep it together & shouldn’t I be outside, listening to footsteps? I have checked my phone twice now already how am I to ever be an academic again? I love my absolutes & I had breakfast with myself today for the first time in months ‘stead of the straight-from-bed-to-running every-day-like-a-boxing-match these days feel less like sport more ripple in a still lake at twilight Logged so many hours of missing you I have to be getting close now. I learned something today too, my cat, she’s not just scratching the wall she’s trying to climb.
