Poem for April 25, 2008

While I Forgot to Watch

Working a 70-hour week, so tired
my eyes water, I barely had time
to look at the tulips
and the sky — my favorite show —
I’ve missed several episodes now
and in my life I’ve forgotten
who the characters are
and I’ve lost track of the plot.

Yes, it’s self-pitying. Leave me alone. Go write your own poetry.
