I’m drowning in laziness,
Cracked leather and tea,
I’ve lost my way in a maze
Of musty pages
And crumbly shortbread cookies.
I am well suited to
Accumulated calories
And fictional worlds.
But reality’s sirens
Scream of homework
And responsibilities
That can’t be put off
At least not any longer.
So reluctantly,
I put down my book, and wipe
The crumbs of indulgence away.
