a k a OctPoWriMo Prompt #18 - Time
Slightly lace filtered Sunlight drips into my eyes
Super Mario bell reaches through a door and a wall
to remind me, school starts late today
This is the time, usually, I arrive at the keyboard.
Today, a blog post, a poem, a flurry of comments
and conversation take their first breaths.
Oh, to have a Nanny to do the driving so I
may simply sit here and gather words into
between my hungry elbows and breasts
and arrange them on a plate for you to devour…
only to realize
without the time invested in driving, in caretaking
in watching this lovely ravaged world float
around me and within me
there would be fewer words to love.
