I wake up everyday to the
sound of a punk rock alarm,
roll out of bed
and grab a towel
to shower. I shampoo
my hair and dry off.
My clothes are cute,
my shoes on point.
I brush my teeth, blow-
dry my hair. I take my pills
and add the color pastels to my
hair. Then I carefully
apply my mascara and eye-
liner, with a touch of lipgloss
which is usually gone by midday.
I fix my nail polish, black to match
my outfit. I rub on my acne cream
and fastened on my earrings,
replacing the bracelets I removed
for my shower. I check my planner
to make sure I know what is on
my schedule for the day. I pee.
Then I am ready.
