Drip Dry #NaPoWriMo2020 Day 5

I feel misplaced,

misread,

somehow other than;

an alien out of space and time.

You say I’m unusual.

Many have said far worse

and far be it from me to disagree.

I rest my head against the bed

it’s far too heavy and it might just snap my neck in two.

I tug at my skin until it is red

it’s feels too tight, I guess I shoulda let it drip dry this time.

But don’t you worry none…

I’m sure it’s not contagious.
