Another Tired Awakening: my latest .@ImageCurve #haibun

I had just put together the disembodied alien when the radio sounded. American Authors sings “this is gonna be the best day of my life…”

I slap the off switch.

Lying in bed, in shock. Every cell throbs with the strain of being awake. I hope to nod off, but I rise five minutes later.

Already exhausted.
