Spinning loneliness into words

L  becomes W

the best way I’ve found

to combat

the panic-provoking isolation

of living in my 1bedroom

apartment

(occupants = 47 pot plants, 0 cats,

1 female writer)

 

Living alone is terrifying

or full of juice,

the balance depends on

the correct use of my laptop:

Netflix bingeing

.VS.

Poem writing

 

Too much consuming,

Not enough creating

= guaranteed

eXistential anXiety

attacks.

Anyone who knows me,

knows this about me.

Just tell me to

switch

screens

please.
