Late

Two hours
I have been reading instead of writing
because my tank feels empty

Two hours
left to accomplish a goal that takes five
oh grief, let me be

Two hours
lazy and sucking down eggstoast and coffee
feelin’ guilty about
(everything)
goals

Two hours more, to
writetenthousandwords
take a walk
read three chapters
showershavemylegs
write a letter, do my hair
and show up looking
like there is life

in here

    Vividly reminds me of that week I ate nothing but French toast. I felt bad, partially because French toast became a bit unappealing after that.
