It all happened so fast.
  1. I go to the bathroom to brush my teeth before bed.
  2. I open the Music app on my phone so I'll have something to listen to. I choose "The Absence of God" by Rilo Kiley.
  3. I listen to the song in its entirety. It reminds me of college.
  4. I'm sad Rilo Kiley broke up, I think. They made such beautiful music together.
  5. Oh no.
  6. They'll never get back together, will they?
  7. I'll never be a college student again, will I?
  8. We all just keep going forward.
  9. And then we die.
  10. Now I'm lying in the bed, staring at the ceiling, wondering how Rilo Kiley became a metaphor for human existence.
  11. I can't sleep.
  12. And I'm filled with dread
  13. But at least my teeth are clean.
