Word of The Day: Snooze
I think it is possible
that my life is wired to a snooze button
and somebody somewhere
keeps slamming their hand down on top of it
for the Hell of it I guess.
Maybe that’s the reason it feels like
my life stops and stalls and I get stuck
at the side of the road, sucking in road dust all day
and from nowhere I can hear someone yelling,
” Five more minutes. I swear. Just five more minutes. “
That can’t be me yelling for five more minutes
that can’t be me slamming my hand down
on top of that snooze button
that is wired to my life
it just can’t be me, why would I do that to myself?
