Time to grab a pick and start digging… (a poem)

It was a much quieter morning for me today than yesterday, even though I am still sneezing plenty. At least I had enough relief to enjoy some coffee and watch the first season of Girls (which I had not seen before) on Amazon Prime.

I watch another one
have another cup of coffee
as I think about my life
about how I’m back in the same old place
I have long wanted to avoid

Yet it seems inevitable
that I come back to this
because every few years
here I am, back in the same old place
I waited years to leave

The way forward
is shrouded in mystery
a dense fog, grainy and impenetrable
