Debating What To Do With The Day

By Scott Wozniak


Sitting on my couch

at 10:30 am

on a Tuesday

in plaid pijamas

and slippers,

fighting the feeling

I should be

doing more–

searching for work,

being a productive member

of society,

or some such bullshit.


Instead of a beer,

I crack the spine

on a book of poetry

by Doug Draime.



I feel the need

to do more


through the cracks,

and find peace

a drink

could never
