My Caffeine Mask

Strange dreams of chewing up diamonds and swallowing silver chains leave me exhausted through the day. I know I have to finish up my taxes after work, though, so I walk in the rain over to whole foods, grab a tea, and suck it down on the walk back to the store.

By the time I leave for the day a couple hours later, I can feel the caffeine propping me up, and I congratulate my self. The sensation is a little creepy, though - the exhaustion is still there, at my core, but it's as if I put on a caffeine suit that I can wear over the weariness like a disguise.
