STATUS NO
(7/10/17)

we wake
up
at times

energy low

hoping
for just
another day

we need
no surprises

no adventures
please

put a mundane
Monday
on our calendar

let us rest
within
the routine

but demands

disasters

seem to strike
when our resources
are flagged

the world
awaits not
our recovery

we must
simply
push effort
until the crisis
passes

we consider
giving up

curling fetal
in a corner

but realize
those consequences
would be worse
than any failure

so
we press
on

praying later
that all
will be the same

the electric

the water

the gas

in working
order

when we
arrive
back home
