A WEEK AWAY
(9/5/19)


the routine
drains us

the routine
haunts us

we hate
the routine

until
our assumed
doldrums
are gone

lost either
due to action

or to
inaction

then
we are
lost

we are
adrift

seeking
anchorage

a port
in the calm
of limbo

four walls
to shelter
us

as we suffer
the weight
of our isolated
existence

wondering
at our
next
patterns
of pathos
