welcoming June

I awoke at 4 to rain. My abdomen was screaming, clenched up with tightness, reminding me of who I am every second I was awake. I yanked on the window but it stuck open. It was dark; I could see nothing while absently groping my way back to bed. Sleep did not return. Instead, thoughts. Last summer; more summers. Years. The feeling of a tangible forever.

I was awoken at 4:30 to a different kind of wetness. Buddy's pee on the bed. Thank god I had bought a waterproof mattress cover.

Ah, dogs. The world is their toilet. I remember changing the sheets at 4am when Harley was a baby, and then bathing her when she pooped in the middle of the night. Fun times.
