Fog

last night I woke up shrouded in fog

with a start I thought smoke

some would say it was an omen

no, the embodiment of my anxiety

I rose, trying to see if the coffee was burning

but with no luck, I went back to bed

staring at the fog that did not exist

staring at the unseen symptoms of illness

and as I slept

the fog crept through my ears into my mind

and comforted me.
