Poems of a Young Man: “A Day…” (© KPKeelan)


The alarm rings

hysterical screams

waterbed sloshes

back twinges

English muffin burns

the hallway tinted gray

I shower

and shave my ragged face

my sleeping brain

devoid of pain

outside rain


it’s all the same

it’s all a game

Late for work

I always shirk

missing shoe

feeling blue

out the door

small leaves fall

crunch under heels

no frills

damned free will

keeps me on the grill

spirit killed

never healed…
