How Did I Get Here?–Day One #OctPoWriMo October 1, 2017

October 1, 2017

How did I get here?

How did I get here
crone on a phone
cursing the spell check
and feeling alone?

How did I get here
just me and the dog
brain that was sharp
now in a fog?

How did I get here?
I don’t know why
To be the one left
all the others must die

How did I get here?
I gave up the fight
I found a blank page
and started to write

    Almost like proofing a book manuscript on a phone on a ship for 75 cents a minute.
