Midnight

By Heather Lockerman


i wake groggy and hot

take a few shallow breaths

the air is stagnant and heavy as if the weight of

the world is alive in my bedroom

my body is yet again on fire from the inside out

i quietly slip to the cool carpet and check the

time

it's always the same; bathroom, fix the sheets,

lay down and ask myself "am i cooler now?"

the answer ... never at midnight
