FALL BACK
(11/6/17)

I don't
need
an extra hour
at 2 am
anymore

back
in the bar
days
the bonus
seemed binge
worthy

but sober
I've got
better things
to do
with the
time

so I keep
to my regular
Sunday routine

if I get
behind schedule
maybe I consider
changing
the clock

but usually
I press forward

doing
what needs
to be done
regardless

going to bed
that evening
in a different
time zone
than my neighbors

reaching
for that hour
button
only come
Monday morning

when I really
feel the need
of a government
imposed
snooze
