Unable to sleep,
I stare at the dark black screen
waiting for it to light up with
“One new message.”

I unlock my phone,
with way too much anticipation,
hoping the message is from

Turns out, I can get four free tickets
to see the hypnotist comic at
The Improv this weekend.

Hmm. Perhaps he can hypnotize
me to make me forget that
i’m enslaved to her hypnosis.

I doubt he has that sort of power.
