NOBODY HOME
(3/26/14)


waking up

kissing my wife

going through
the morning
routine

driving to
work

the parking lot
the hallway
the alarm
the office
my desk

I've kept
my eyes
and ears
open
but nothing really
has jumped out
at me
to be
written

or I've written
about them
so many times
before

I am simply
exhausted

oh

I've done
that one
too

I brew
some green
tea

do some
deep
knee bends

still
nothing

I feel old

worn out

stupid

how
have I devolved
into such
a creature?

sitting here
sipping tea
like an 80
year old
great grandmother

but still
I am here

which is more

much more

than many
I've known
can say

when
there's not
anything else
I guess
that
has to be
enough

but it
never
is
