#082: get out of bed

It is noon And I still lie in supine Under my palace of ink-stained bedding Smelling the day two aroma of the fresh sheet I stretch my limbs Toe prints pad the cave I’ve made Before retracting knee to pit Am I a happy baby? Or a lost pup Chasing the duvet’s tale instead of the day? This energy-zapping attempt to avoid That violet room we were birthed from And will consume us when the dog has had its day Under waffled wonder-cotton Where Procrastination lies Avoidance often orchestrates my own demise
