Burnout

When the same standard-issue days roll
I am tied, gagged, still on the deck
Of the other night’s sinking dreamboat.

It’s when the city lights become lackluster
And the cool but well-meaning rain
Is not the same one I used to dance under.

I take it I wasted too much time well-spent
On thundering brainstorms and lousy paperwork
For a thing we call a living

that was really weren’t.

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
