ringing out the day

ringing out the day
the klaxon sounds
I’ve gone so far that
bed and sleep are
the only things left
between now and
tomorrow

TOMORROW??!!

can’t there be a
short time here
a minuscule minute
a robust tick
a rotund tock
anything to broaden
the gap between
between now and
when I have to get up
and do it all over again?
