NaPoWriMo 29

Today, I thought about drowning.
I didn’t. Instead, I fell asleep

in front of an open window
in the rain, woke up wondering

why everything was soaked. Today,
I walked to the ocean from home

in the midwest just for a drink.
Today, I swear I cut off all my fingers

by accident with a knife left
haphazardly in the sink, but then

it was there again and I couldn’t tell
life from dream. Today, I took

a hammer to my hands, just to see
if they would break. They did.

Today’s recommendation:
