The day begins with a tiny speaker screaming at me I jolt from a disturbing dream (thankful) Trying to distinguish reality from fiction I collide with objects strategically placed throughout the house First flip of a switch brings blindness to my brain I am disoriented, but things come into focus Why am I in the clothes room? oh...I need to shower Onward I slumber through the house The shock from the water pelting my body begins to unerve me I start to relax, entering a familiar tranquil state Again JOLTING my body upright, preventing me nodding off in my new found solidarity I wait until the last drop of warm water is spent Apprehensively I throw open the shower curtain, lunging for a towel Crap! no towel No wonder I found myself in the clothes room
