I remember a stretcher,
and seemingly imaginary paramedics talking to me,
then averting their gaze with disdain

I remember the ambulance ride,
checking my phone,
believing I was in a parallel world
with the same geography but not based in reality

I remember being wheeled into the room and
predicting each nurse's face right before she walked in,
somehow being right every time

The minutes took hours to pass,
and I was on one percent battery

The realization that it wasn't a hallucination after all
was the worst moment of the entire day,
entire year perhaps,
and I face the consequences still
