Day 124 – Purple Fishes

By the end of this I’ll be ready-
I’ve already had so much of fear-
nothing’s really wrong and yet
I grind my teeth while grappling
over time off work requests and
competing with you in my sleep.
I will not miss it all when the hangman comes,
I’ll drop down to my feet and nod to sleep
and purple fishes will be swirling
peacefully inside of me.
