One of My Turns

Title inspired by a Pink Floyd song

I walk along the beach. Unwanted memories return. I scream at the stars.

“Why do you give me more than I can handle?”

I feel a surge of adrenaline when I realize I don’t have my backpack. Then I remember it’s locked up back at the hotel.

I should work.
