i'll never know

sometimes i take ambien
not because i need to sleep
but because i like to stay awake
and write poetry
even though the bottle tells me not to

and sometimes
i wake up the next day
with no harm done
just a screenfull of random poetry
that was somehow written by me

but sometimes
i wake up the next day
and i don't know how I got into my bed

and i notice that
my neighbor's blinds are shut
and next to the couch is a pile of clothes
and the kitchen counter is stained brown with whiskey
and my neighbor's blinds stay shut for days after that
and i wonder

holy shit, did i really dance naked in front of my window eating a rice cake?
