Ode to a Faltering Night Owl

drip drop
thursday drained
limbs slip liquid
squeeze lazy
haze sigh lungs
stretch neck cicadas
and "pleasedon'tstopthe
pleasedon'tstopthe
music" on repeat
sour lukewarm lemon
zinger mug half full won't
finish
heat sticks hair to skin
stale sheen
to-do list needs to-doing
but if i'm smart i'll drift
five inches to reach
bed if i can get
off my butt get
out of my head

This should be set to music IMO.
