5 am Monday

Processed with VSCOcam with c9 preset

Slipping on the conflagration,
sleep and voracious ambition
slightly out of phase, painted red,
the curtain’s murderous intent
aflame in the sunlight seeping in
as we wrestle with the birdsong
burning its way through the walls.
This is a match we can’t win.
Better regroup and reassess.
Better sleep on it.
Just five more minutes.
