The Tomato-coloured Couch 5:35pm

I am in the psychiatric unit

of My Mind

sitting on a vinyl couch

waiting for the day to end

waiting for supper @ 4:00

making My twenty-fifth cup of tea

but in My Reality

I am BACK — on MY COUCH

tomato-coloured

with My Big Black Panther

at My Feet

& potato salad

in the fridge
