It’s a Few Minutes Before Two

by James Babbs

and I have to take a piss
I throw off the blankets
and sit on the edge of the bed
I was dreaming about
the dog I had
when I was a boy
then recalling for a moment
the woman I had coffee with
just a couple of weeks ago
we had a pleasant enough conversation
but I guess we didn’t connect
I get up
and head to the bathroom
I have two of them
one here in the bedroom
and another one down the hall
I want to check my phone
see if I have any new emails
I wonder
how long it will take me
to go back to sleep
