in-between

coming/going

some days it’s just
out of reach

i’ve never slept
with the television on
but i’m drawn to songs
that mention doing so

some days it’s just
out of focus

i thought i loved
doing this thing
but it’s falling from
my empty hands

i’m waiting for
the what’s next

I can’t catch it
but at some moment
it’ll kick me
just
when I’m not looking.
