how I overcame a sad day - manual

I sat
and drank some tasteless tea
with a teabag left inside the cup

I didn't wash my face
I deleted something
I remembered someone

I wore cold socks and even colder underwear

I kept looking at a trashy porcelain sculpture
in my neighbor's living room for ten minutes
until the only thing in the room
exuding warmth was me

I swore to myself not to do anything
not no read any newspaper
not to make any promises
not to wear the color black
and definitely not to use words of latin origin

I intentionally ignored the weather forecast
and all the fashion rules
and lied about knowing any fashion rules

I kept counting blue dots on your shirt
and never reached the final number
because of so many distractions
