Trying to get through the day

To the glee of my friends

seldom their envy,

I lie in my bed,

hugging a pillow case.

Hardly anything excites me

these days, except maybe

Trump or whatshisface!

My story is not thrilling

or inspiring or even finished

as a matter of fact, it’s just

not happening. I’m too

oblong to try. Too opaque

to attempt a productive cycle.

I know you are on LinkedIn

and Facebook and Instagram

living your dream life or at least

its aesthetic duplicate. I’m

just trying to lay butter on my bread

and get through the day,

dreaming about sex on Sunday.
