Day twenty-four

tequila was a bad choice


i hope my lap is comfortable enough

especially while lying on the bathroom floor

the tile is cold



she’s quiet

almost too quiet

but asks me to tell her a story


pretty sure she won’t remember any of this

but i push her hair behind her ear

to make sure she can hear me clearly


don’t know what to say

so i just talk


i eventually reposition myself

but she believes that i’m leaving her side

she’s afraid

tells me to never leave her


i tell her i won’t

and continue my story
