Monday Morning This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Mondays ...

The incitement point

Of new drudgery,

Too much coffee

gives me the jitters.

You smile a reminder

of Saturday night.



I dream ...

Of coming days

Partitioned off

In my mind,

Like cell blocks,

(When will the walls

come tumbling down?)



It seems ...

My schedule makes

No sense, when

Not enough sleep

Tugs at my curtains,

Asking me to

Draw the drapes.



I try ...

Concentration eludes

My swimming mind

When my only thoughts

Are of Advil, slumber,

And some time

To myself.
