the VOID





I woke up to the alarm
banging in my ears

still I was wondering
what's the word
ten letters - red state

snoozed it again
for another ten more

but for what?
I should've turned it off
am not gonna go to work
and today is Wednesday

fifty two missed calls
thirteen messages
ninety nine plus on whatsapp

two roaches came out
from the pizza box

but what was that word
seventeen across - red state?
ten letters

my neck stiffed
may be because of the couch
my cheek is wet with sweat
laying on the leather

actually there are four roaches
did I really leave a piece in the box?

well I can't reach the table
whats that poking under my tummy?
oh the remote...

lets turn on the television

what was that word
ten letters, red state?

oh fuck,
where's the paper?

damn!
I used it to sponge the floor
there it is kinda stuck

I think the crossword page is safe

have to get up to find it though
I will wait a little more
till I get a nature call

dont wanna get up
just to pick up the paper

dont wanna waste my energy
throw the pizza box, clean the floor, take a bath
but not now

is that my rubik cube
under the table
was looking for that

my girlfriend gave it to me
she must be pissed right now
office will get on my nerves
fuck it

a roach stared right back at me
tsk, I waved my hand at it

again the alarm on my phone
this time I turned it off
and turned to my right
