On the walk back from the bathroom at 1:30am

I discover

My right arm

Reaches out to my side

Touches the familiar objects,

Landmarks in my house I know are there

even in the dark

As I pass through the space.

My left arm is poised

Its elbow bent at a 90-degree angle to the floor

Palm facing upwards.

 

THIS IS AN INVESTIGATION OF

THE PALM FACING UPWARDS

 

NO

 

THIS IS AN INVESTIGATION OF

WHY THE HECK I’M AWAKE AT 1:30AM

 

NO

 

THIS IS AN INVESTIGATION OF

 

OF

 

No—

 

This is not an investigation of anything,

This is a poem.
