From the poem:

"If I store my memories according to the story. My personal

Thumb drive keeps a steady grip on reality.

I’m on a therapist queue. Been networking for

Weeks now. I hope I get a call back.

I’ve never been on a blind date before. I wonder how

Long I should stay at the table before"
