Race Car Bed

The friction between his arm
and the red plastic that makes up
his race car bed creates blue sparks
that reveal the aliens on his movie
posters. He couldn’t see anything from
his window accept for the fact that it was
dark out, and the neighbors across the street
had a light on between their garage doors.
If anything he was happy about the numerous
things keeping him awake. They were like bats
but when you see them from far away and aren’t
entirely sure that they’re not just birds flying around
at night. In just ten years time, he will see someone
choking on an ice cube and do nothing. Not because
he wants the person to continue to hurt, but because
a part of him knows that whatever is causing the problem
will melt away with a little time.
