work: proof of an able mind and body
sleep is like a death
waking is like…megadeath
note your body’s desperation
shutdown reboot shutdown agitation
momentum for the next bluff
no, no, no, encouragement is in the air;
take it in like oxygen I swear
a brand-new day, never been used before
is truly yours.
for the Day is not a ‘hand-me-down’ game;
each one is not the same
but, but, but, what do I do with all this
tiredness weakness numbness?
I cannot stay or run away.
Thanksgiving everyday, dare I say, is the way
to make a good day.
