November 1, 2016

Watery eyes and blurry world
And an excuse to do nothing.
Not a paper can be graded,

Nor a chore completed.
Baby blues have done me a favor.
Allowed me to sit without guilt

On the couch and screen Halloween
Movies beyond an ethereal layer. Work will wait.
For now, another day at home,

The medicine's effects not quite
Complete. Drops in the eye
In a pocket to save for another day.

This is Poem #190 from the  Poem (almost) Everyday Project. Starting in mid-January 2016, I challenged myself to spend a year in which I’d wake most mornings and write a poem before my first cup of coffee. By the end of the year,  I had written 241 poems.  Here, I have published second drafts of  those pieces copied directly from my journal with minimal editing from their “vomit draft” state.
