Just Because NaPoWriMon 2017 entry !




Just Because


Today I’m going to bed early. 
Sleep little, 
until 6,
no stars, 
no clowns,
no mirrors, 
no brushing my teeth,
with all my clothes on,
my sneakers 
muddying the bed sheet,
just because,
I feel like it,
because
I’m done with
this cold
hospital,
and the needles,
the drips,
nurses,
doctors,
the food,
but most of all
the fucking 
bed.
