I wanted yesterday to end so badly
that I came back to my room.
I stared at the pictures taped to my walls.
I don’t remember if I thought anything.
I closed the window shutters and
watched the sunset through my fingers,
smearing the hills with gold.
When I opened my eyes it was dark,
my mirror snaked with moonlight.
I lay down again and felt my body sink
like it had already gone out.
I had always known,
like a weight on my eyelids,
that I could never leave this,
or find anything I wanted more.
