Jack Orleans is a Denver writer whose work has been featured in Birdy Magazine; SUNY Hopewell's literary journal, The Finger; and Suspect Press. He can’t seem to fall asleep. He takes the bus late to have coffee. While taking the bus, he’s happy until someone fucks up. After, he’s happy but with caveats. He knows that he’d be awake regardless of having had coffee. He prefers to be awake and alert over awake and tired. He just doesn’t know what he wants, but it better involve lots of undeserved perks or skymiles.
