CAFFEINE FRIDAY
(2/28/14)


I reach
deep inside
for the energy
to end
this
workweek

there
is nothing
there

I can't
imagine
surviving
until
5pm

as I walk
down
the hall
to the office
I pass
the break room

looking
outside myself
for strength
to combat
this inner
weakness
I see
the coffee pot

I shall
need
some blackness
to brighten
this day

I take
the first
of many
detours
