Done

Hello. You’ve reached KARL, our automated message system. The revolutionary is out of the office until January 3rd. If you require an emergency insurrection, please dial 911.

Beeep.

Thank fucking god. I’ve been hanging on to each day by my fingernails and have felt myself slipping. As I told Mimi, it’s like all my adrenaline ran out at once.

After the fever, I realized I had to stop and I will, in the new year. Until then, a taste of what it will be like when my days have no union in them.

It’s been three and a half years since my days have had no union in them.

Tomorrow, I’ll make a pot of coffee and write down all of the things I’ve been thinking about but haven’t had the energy to lock into place. Then, I’ll look through the books I picked up at the library today. And then maybe I’ll do the dishes.

I said, maybe.
