bachelor pad

a steaming cup of noodles
scented candles that have never been lit
and some scented candles that have
a heap of laundry
an air conditioner hums in the background
the room is dimly lit
but the adjacent room isn't
so it balances out
it's dark outside
you can tell because the window doesn't have curtains
also the clock is showing that it's past 8 pm
he is tired after a long day of work
lying in bed like he usually does when he is not working
in a few hours he'll be asleep
in a few more hours his phone will ring
it's the alarm
playing beautiful music
telling him it's time to do it all over again
