It was Saturday and I slept all day. I woke up at 4pm to eat.
At 6pm, Mom called me for dinner but I wasn’t hungry.
So I slept again cos I was tired.
As in really tired.
Suddenly I woke up at 12 midnight. I looked for some food in the fridge. I couldn’t find any and mom didn’t spare my meal earlier cos she knew I wouldn’t eat it so she gave it to tiger, our dog full of angst.
I found some flour, milk and a chocolate syrup so I made myself a tasty pan cake and a cup of great taste coffee.
I don’t know after cooking I suddenly went out to the laundry area at the back of our house and took a bath with nothing on. I’m not sure at the moment if I was very much awake til the cold and icy water sifted in my pores. And the wind blew and touched my skin. And I realized wow, I’ve never been this alive at midnight!
And then a question suddenly got me as if I was having a fine argument with my other self:
what the heck was that April?
Why, what did I do?
Waking up, cooking when you weren’t even hungry then, took a deadly bath outside your house!
What you did was crazy!
Then I said, of course not, that was cool! Awesome! 😂
Let’s try that next time..
Then after a while of cooling off, I got some time to think about it, what I did really surprised me then I started to freak out!
Me, taking a bath outside our house, in an open space with nothing on at midnight. I could have done it in the bathroom in our house. Hmm.. I hope nobody saw me standing there.
Arrested by the spell
From the sleep that
Burnt the sounds
Of everything around me
Quieting the move I made
Unnoticed my own actions
Digging for something
I didn’t know what
Finding myself naked out in the back
Still didn’t know how creepy this could get
When at the count of three
I knew I just couldn’t scream at midnight
Starless, windy, cold and intense
Bewildered by my own actions
I don’t know if I could eat what I cooked.
