awakelessness

a dark flicker
out of the corner of my eye
like someone turned out a light
in adjacent room

this is the beginning of the end
the brain beginning to shut down
finally succumbing to sleeplessness
natty in that last backless suit

that perfume is intoxicating
sends me swirling in my stillness
only subtle movements of fingers
on keys, a last-ditch effort
to get this out.  ctrl-s
cannot save
system shutting down
esc
esc
