Pillow fight

My pillow ate half of my neck last night and left pain
sticking out like a fish bone on an emptied plate
One, don’t take work to your bedroom
Two, sit upright and smile at nothing
Three, get up and stretch like a baby’s yawn
Four, drink more water like the Harmattan
Five, eat something more than mangoes and coffee
Six, lift your head up from the screen and call your mother
Seven, masturbate and hug your pillow
This is the only way to stop your pillow from eating
any part of your body on a Sunday night
