JOBSLEEP
(11/7/11)


I made
the mistake
last night
of idly
taking inventory
of Monday's
work itinerary
before
drifting off
to dreamville

my REM images
were filled
with the structure
conformity
and insanity
of the spreadsheets
databases
and emails
of my workday
LCD dementia

faces
became scans
conversations
data entries
and thoughts
footnotes
on dream
documents
quickly deleted

a midnight
movie
of daily mundanity
mixed
with digital madness
on the same
sleeping screen
of disreality

I awoke
neither
well rested
nor any closer
to conclusion
with today's
duties

I look
to caffeine
to cleave
the crystal
of my confusion
into separate
worlds
once again
