Consciousness

Tap, tap.

Do this, do that.

Tick, tock.

Are you doing it?

Round and round.

What’s that sound?

Tap, tick, tap.

Wind the clock.

Drip, drop, drip, drop.

Left the water running.

Turn the tap.

Exhale.

Tick, tock, tick, tock.

Clock still running fast.

Wind it again.

Take back the minutes.

Pitter, patter, pitter, patter.

Scurrying on the roof.

Pitter, patter, pitter, patter.

Something’s on the loose.

Breathe out.

Thump, thump, thump, thump.

Drumbeat in your chest.

Thump thump thump thump thump.

Quickening pace, turn around.

Tap, tap. Tap, tap.

Silence.

All in your head.
