Sixth sense

If I have a sixth sense, it’s probably
the ability to hear seagulls saying my name.
Or knowing which guffs will be loud.
It could be remembering Eastenders characters
from the late 90s to early 2000s
or having a face that looks like a Craig.
There’s a chance it’s ruining the mood or over-ordering
portions of chips or being hyper aware when people
look even the slightest bit away from my
direction when I’m answering their question.
It could be never being satisfied with just one Twister
or never seeing Bruce Willis out and about
or knowing when everything is going to fall apart
and completely ignoring the signs.
