Forecast : apologetic rainbow
I remember now, the damn point of it all.
It occurs to me in trickles, slow bursts of momentumand then a huge wave,
flooding me with realization at four-thirty.
It matters. The four-thirty part.
The limbo between night and day.
Nothing magical happens at four-thirty.
It’s utterly unremarkable.
Because today, one remarkable text flashes on my phone :you’re an amazing writer, you know that
I retrieve the words back into my lab for testing…
No matter how much I try to cool it, they won’t solidify.
I rearrange them, sit them on my tongue

I’m unfamiliar with this formula, with equations that don’t equal zero.

But now at four thirty…this curious anomaly.
The variable I didn’t consider.
Was that the point didn’t have anything to do with me.
It’s a freedom of a kind.To erase myself off the chalkboard.
It’s a burden too, carrying this for you.
The words are yours as much as mine.
You, you’ve been the point this whole time
