Chemistry

Flesh colored tones through closed eyes
Blink to sunshine
The gravel pushes off my toes
propelling my another step
The calm before a storm
I am as prepared as I can be
I haven’t been sleeping lately
A blue pill on my lips
Hid the drowsiness
My favorite assistant.
Wednesday is almost here
A shower, a nap, a book, a blog, and more await my time
Window down, chin to elbow
I can smell the salt in the air
Energized only by the ocean
The storm arrives as I do.
I write my name in the corner
and begin.
