The alarm is set,
I go to bed at 10:30pm,
But my internal clock dings at 5am,
And the snooze button isn’t functional.
So I throw myself vertical,
Make my bed, and meander to the bathroom.
On nothing but momentum and coffee fantasies.
The tired will weave,
Ebb and Flow at its extremes,
All there is to do,
Is to push until I break through.
