PSYCHIC DOLDRUMS
(2/3/14)


the day
is dismal
indeed

energy
is low

desire
nonexistent

spiritual
resources
seem
distant

waking

bathing

dressing

are difficult
drudgeries

the most
I hope
upon leaving
is a routine
Monday
with no
surprises

I just
need the car
to start

no accidents
or tickets
along the
way

the lights
heat
and computers
to be working
at the office

coffee

please God
coffee

no urgent
memos
emails
or voicemails
lying
in ambush

minimal
goals
for a minimal
day
of existence

tomorrow
perhaps
I will rip
the sky
asunder

but today
I simply
wish
not
to die
