Something, anything
to unstuff the stuff
one week, I opine,
is surely enough
an antidote of sorts
tiramisu, ice cream
for restless sleep
and delirious dreams
one step forward
two steps back
a tune on repeat
and sneezing attack
on a different planet
I lost track of the days
yet still writing poetry
so I guess I’m okay
