I woke in the night

to a blinking light.


Who would be,

could be,

trying to reach me?


Someone posted a new picture

in their Facebook feed;

another sent out an ad,

because they were sure I was in need.


I forgot to turn off the notifications.

and now I can’t go back to sleep.  


These are not what I want to be keeping me up at night.

There is so much more to life

than responding to a blinking light.
