I Never Saw It Coming

I spilled the entire box of
cotton swabs onto the
bathroom floor this
morning while
listening to my
new favorite song,
which is called,
enough, The Rising.

And I was feeling
so much more on
top of things, too,
having won nearly
every round of
Word Battle
that I’ve played
this week.

I should learn
to scrutinize the
evidence much
better, because
later, after what
I thought’d been
a successful attempt
to rally back my mojo,

I go to meet Otto for
dinner at Sam Wo’s
in Chinatown—in honor
of the Chinese New Year—
and wouldn’t you know it
but Sam Wo’s is closed.
For Chinese New Year.
