friday is the color of fish flesh
and smells of too many prayers
half thought during
smoke breaks, lunch breaks,
whispered against white walls
of toilet cabins, without ever a reply.

friday tentacles around us
with green arms, clamors
downstairs into our dreams
every night, every night
until one day we wake
to find it sitting by our bedside,
twiddling its thousand thumbs.
