A late entry from M. Le Pard…


And so to Sue’s prompt – v. late as I am, a poem about time from this


Monday Morning

The clock flips over.

I stir, dragged from my Kapok smothered dreams.

I struggle upright like the first primate,

And the forward shuffle, preternaturally aged.

Wobbling I make the bathroom without memory.

I sit and piss. If I try to stand and perform,

I prove, for the umpteenth time, that I can’t multitask.

The clock flips over.

I exercise my eyelids; small, painful push-ups.

I stare in the mirror; a dark eyed cadaver is blocking my view.

Like some trainee barrista, practising his skills,

I tip blood-rippled foam into the sink and sprinkle it with bristles.

My fingers have solidified overnight.

My trousers and shirt fight with flimsy determination to stay hung.

My cuff links scurry away from my grasp, like coy beetles, refusing to pair off.

The clock flips over.

    To M. LePard. You are a genius for this line alone, if no other:

    “I exercise my eyelids; small, painful push-ups.”
