October 9 - The end.

by Jason Wardell

I had a vision of the end,
another day waking in sweat,
lungs thick and heavy,

of putting a key under a mat,
of hefting a bicycle
      with two flat tires
      down three floors,
of putting it in a car
      which still has
      that broken mirror.

Another day. The end.
Thick lungs. Sweat.
Everything the same
until it isn't.
