6 Totally Exhausted 6 Line Monday Thoghts

8:42 am
I hate following
behind people
in the early morning
who aren't in a panicked
speed-walking hurry,
like me.

10:54 am
I've been awake
for four hours
and ran all over campus
and made calls
and sent emails
but I've only made 25 bucks.

1:23 pm
I'm running
back and forth
in confusing
overlapping
circles.
The turtle pond felt shallow.

5:02 pm
Where
is the day,
it slipped away
and I sweat out
any anger at it's loss
in small, cold beads.

10:29 pm
Clean,
Fresh,
Cold.
Blue and red
and full of notes
This feels like work.
