Yesterday It Rained

But not in Arizona.
Here, the phone rings and rings.
No one cares to answer.
I cup my hands around a glass,
nails raw and ragged.
If I could sleep forever,
I wouldn’t have to drink.

But, I wake up; lie still
until the dark begins to speak.
I swallow accusation.
No windows in this room.
