five

drip,

drip,

drip.

it shouts from across the room.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

wrenched down by the thoughts as they swirl.

5, 5, 5, 5, 5.

no, not yet.

5, 5, 5, 5, 5.

still not right.

five, five, five, five, five.

no. better do it again.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

relief.

..drip.

attempt to clear the thoughts, 

no, not right.

right needs more. right needs more. right needs more. 

right has too much.

left needs more, left needs more, left needs more. 

too much.

right.
