Today

Puffy eyes.
Pale as death.
Couldn't hold up the weight of my mask today.
They saw, they cared.
Got thru seven hours, drove around.
More music, finished a tissue box.
Lots and lots of Psalms. Pink underlines and a Greek lexicon.
Pictures and prayer, spaghetti and garlic.
Internet made my heart race. Needles and yarn.
More music, more pictures, more words.
Pillow now, maybe dreams.
