Room is dark save for that

White shining LED light

Breaths and mumbles deafening

A gentle flow from the AC running

Covers up high. Cozying inside

A shrill cry. I close eyes

Wishing it would stop

No such luck. Two eyes peer at me

Alrite. Lets go. Shush shush.

Pop. Pour. Close. A bottle

Drink drink my little one

My bed beckons. One tiny hand plays with me

Its a long night
