I wake up and my jaw aches

I just got sent home from work. I'm not completely sure, but I think I got dumped via email. That'll teach me to check my email when I'm at work -- worst fifteen minute break ever.

I hold on hard
to something
between my teeth
when I'm sleeping
and I wake up
and my jaw aches
and the Earth
is full of earthquakes ...
