i am so tired, the kind of tired where i have to hold my head up with my hands whenever they are free. i looked in the mirror this morning, as my kittens played in the sink below, and noted the dark purplish color of the skin under my eyes. i must have been rubbing them in my sleep. the red tendrils of irritated blood vessel snake across the pinkish-white and underneath grey irises.
i'll pack up my suitcase, crushing everything inside to zip it shut. at least there hasn't been time to put down roots.
