So much stuff under glass
happening in a flash—a whir—a millisecond
Meanwhile I lie still waiting for the next faithful chime
Then the night is done—I missed my REM
I forgot to dream
A world of chemicals and emotions and distant memories
This world without glass—it will never be
If only I’d been reminded—
if only there’d been a notification
