these are eight

things that fry my concentration

so that my neurons shrivel like burnt hairs:


trying to imagine a calendar in my head

trying to place plans inside the days


thinking about numbers at all, really

thinking about their shapes, even


remembering which activities i liked

remembering them each by name


forcing my imagination to fire

forcing commands down my spine
