My Monday (a verbless haiku chain)

Oh, Monday!

A morning chance encounter
tentative next steps
the inevitable wait

And my favor deficit
bigger and bigger
a stretch with no signs of hope

Attempted birthday message
‘username not found’
scratch that name from my contacts

An improvised episode
the jokes kind of flat
in both east- and west-coast feeds

The clock now half past seven
daylight into dusk
evening close to an end
