“Flip Book”

Rummaging through
my bedside table
uncovered
things I had forgotten
about.

There was this
one particularly
bad night up in
the bathroom,
sick as a dog,
trying to pray
the misery away.

When I got
back to bed
I pulled the mini
Post-it notes
out and wrote
“You are strong”.
I only wrote
three notes in
total, but I read
them many
times.

I cried when
I found it. Not
because I
thought I had
lost it, but
because the
things I
have turned off
came back
on and
I couldn’t find
the knob
for the volume...
