BLESSED MONOTONY
(10/12/17)

I awake

clear
my head

marvel again
at the complicated
combination
of miracles
that will
allow me
to conduct myself
through yet
another day

to stand

walk

bathe

dress

dine

drive
to an office
where I still
have a job

amazing

really

one
blood clot
could end
all of this

one slip
in the shower

one virus
run amok

one car
wreck

any number
of major/minor
personal catastrophes
might finish
this long run
of routine
existence

I am
most grateful
today

please

bore me
to death

I beg
of you
