upon waking. tuesday morning

tuesday morning

wake me with flashing pixelated light

blast me with heat from a gasoline engine

drop a single sugar donut into my belly

float me on a river of coffee 

black. let them play with words 

if they want 


hard 2 be gentle

sucking fossil fuels 

engines roaring 

it’s hard to be 

gentle with our self 




a full tank nearly broke the bank

the price of gas rising almost feels decent like

solidarity with Ukraine
