My neighbors. My dumbass
neighbors installed these stupid
lights that shine up and make their house
all pretty at night
for all the zillions of people
driving nice and slow
through our quiet suburban neighborhood
to see the pretty houses,
all the zillions and zillions
that will never even notice,
and the best part
the best part is that they don't even shine on the house,
they shine across the street right through my fucking window.

Three nights of this.

One
Two
Three

Five hours of sleep
Three hours of sleep
and now tonight,
number three,
clocking in at a whopping zero hours and counting,
take your bets people. How far through his retina
will those stupid fluorescent bulbs burn?
I have had garbage bags under my eyes for the past three days
and I'm tired of this bullshit.
I get up
shuffle downstairs
out the door
across the street,
careful to avoid all of the absolutely massive amount of people
admiring this pretty house with these pretty lights,
right across their clean shaven lawn
I shuffle right up to those lights and rip every single one of them
out of the ground
and place them in the mailbox.
I want to place them in the ass of my neighbor.
Maybe tomorrow.

Shuffle back
across the lawn
across the street
avoid the car-fulls of people
(so many of them!)
slam my door
up the stairs
lay in bed and click off the lights.

OH MY GOD.
DARKNESS.

Click back on the lights.
Just so I can get the feeling of turning them off again
and closing my eyes and actually seeing nothing.

Click. Off.

Darkness.

COMP
LETE
AND
UT
TER
DARK
NESS

Victory!

I fall asleep to the disappointed whispers of the trillions of passers by who barely missed their opportunity to see that spectacular sight. I pretend it's the sound of the ocean.
Today I feel electric grey
I hope tomorrow, neon black

lol

you'd be fun to have lunch with.
(in a more constructive note, I enjoyed the winding narrative and the fact that you didn't get to caught up in making something inappropriately serious out of this)
