20 Seconds

20 seconds

20 Seconds

I’ve counted to twenty
so many times now
that my sink overflows
with slippery numbers

20 second songs
20 second prayers-laments
20 second “notes to self”
laughter
blank stares
angry words

tears
20 second promises to myself
and everyone else
until the numbers
form an equation
of hope enough
for the day.
