“You speak to me in italics slanting your thoughts deep into me you come at me from an angle impaling me on the point of desire you lean towards me like a tree in the wind each leaf inscribed with the same word I have never met your type before yet I can read you like a book.”—André Ramier, Italics

Day 4 - 10:16AM
Set timer for twelve minutes. Don’t know how long I actually sat for, but by a rough estimate, it was probably close to twenty. I forgot to change the sound settings on my phone when I set the timer.
Chatterbrain was less active today. Still there, but he seems to be learning that there’s a time and place for everything.
I became aware of some of the more subtle uncomfortable sensations in my body: the pain in my torso, sinus discomfort, stiffness in my hips and legs.
I began thinking about her after a while.
Focus became tired, chatterbrain jumped at the opportunity.
Started to think about sex.
I wonder what’s up with the timer.
I opened my eyes. It had gone off several minutes ago, in silence.
