floating in dream-like space
saturated with sleepiness
consciousness fading

as I sip at bland coffee work ethic slips away
my slippers
where did I leave them this time

weariness pervades
last tatters of energy
burnt out in a sigh

awake enough only to acknowledge piles of laundry
never does itself
groan deep breath eyes roll look away simulated snore

no strength to fight the horrors of grammar
and no one really cares about spellcheck at this hour
moan scratch head rub eyes

just one more line
one more carriage return
then a nap
