Spaced Out

12:30 PM

 Sometimes you're 23 [or 25] and standing in the kitchen of your house
making breakfast and brewing coffee,
& listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart.

You're just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning.

And also, more exciting things like books you're reading and trips you plan on taking,
and relationships that are springing into existence.

Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting.

And suddenly you just don't feel at home.

When you realize that you'll never be this young again, but this is the first time you've ever been this old. When you can't remember how you got from sixteen to here, and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now.

The song is over.

The coffee's done.

You're going to breathe in and out.

You're going to be fine in about five minutes.
