Tonight

Tonight I screamed and cried in the bathroom while my son sat outside and asked if I was alright.

Tonight I fought with a god that I don't think I believe in.

Tonight I watched a church play about Jesus.

Tonight I chased my hollering son around a church where old folks shushed him.

Tonight I lost my son's jacket and brand new backpack in said church.

Tonight I missed my friend.

Tonight I asked why babies have to die.

Tonight I fantasized about clearing out the checking account, getting in the car, and driving as far as I could.

Tonight I realized that my daughter is almost a teenager and doesn't care if I show up to support her when she's in the church play.
