How It Is
How unread books pile up. How coffee
doesn't make you lively after four hours
of apneatic sleep. How Neil Sedaka
still pounces on the piano with vim
and skill, sixty years after his first hits.
How 66 degrees in July never feels cool.
How Mayim Bialik makes your heart melt.
How you feel at home in the precincts
of Anglicanism. How you missed your Tuesday
writers' group, and was dejected all day.
How laundry is tugging at your sleeve
like a hungry tired child. How the cupboard
is bare of bread and cereal, the refrigerator
milkless. How spent you feel, always.
