Missing Thursday

Woke up.

Flipped on coffee maker.

Stared out window.

Flipped on computer.

Spencer Alley.

Those green Cezannes.

From Wednesday.

Checked calendar.

Today is Friday.

What about Thursday?

Checked camera.

One picture.

From Thursday.

Spencer Alley living room.

Ratty green sofa.

Did I take that?

More likely aliens.

They abducted me

They took the picture.

But then that's when I remembered the dental surgeon.

Doomed molar.



The violent extraction.

Pieces, fragments, shards, blows, grunts, apologies.

I forgot.

That was Thursday.
