On Writing

Poem 256 – One Thing At A Time & Reminders

One Thing At A Time

Hear the alarm
Snooze it
Finish the bizarre dream
Hear the alarm again
Sit up
Rub eyes
Hear the soundtrack fade in
The symphony of waking
The crackle of electricity
The churn of marrow
The waft of blood
The moan of muscle
All this and more led
By multiple conductors
Voices like batons
Guiding lyrics into now

Do this
Then this
Even though it feels like more
It is one thing at a time

Pick up the pen
Open the journal
Unwrap the words
Write the poem
