The snow looks like tiramisu,
but you see a dirty, late Spring.
Too many plows blocking us
in and too many cancelled dates
and rain checks for nights out.
We want to
forget about who we are.
It’s too much to be alone
with ourselves.
We have to stay in
and think about what it means
to stay in.

Close enough to
smell Dorito breath of your
brother,
cuddled up and angry.
We don’t want to be home,
but when we are cold and
numb
with shovel marks
on our hands,
all we want to be is
inside.

I figured out

today

that what

drives me also

divides me.

When I wake up

from a nap

I am two people.

I am the person

I was before

that nap

and the person

after.

I have decisions

to make now,

I have a place

to disconnect

from.

I have to get

back to work

and I have to

somehow

convince myself

that going back

to sleep

will not solve

anything

because if it could

then it

would have already

happened.

I think that a nap

could push me,

it could be

the one thing

that makes me

finish that essay

or that reading

response

from Hell.

So I take that

nap and indulge

in giving in.

Because sometimes

giving in

is the only way

I feel like

time isn’t getting

past me.

I feel like something

will happen

after I do this

for myself.

After I finally

let my body

fold into

itself,

curl into

my mind,

And then I can

wake up

to something

different,

Something

that has always

been there,

But something

within it

that I have

never seen

before.
