And You?

That feeling when
you wake at 4:00 a.m.
palms wet, heart racing,
in a panic because you
only
just
now
remembered
the copies
you were supposed to mail
to the judge and the defendant
yesterday
and forgot to do
so you lay in a sweat
until it’s late enough to
rise, shower, dress,
attempt composure
and drive carefully
safely
to work
even though the
stress is making you panicky
and you get the copies in the
envelopes as quickly as possible
and post them
into the post box
like a cowboy
roping a calf
and when the last bend of the rope
is around three of four legs,
he throws up his hands—CLEAR!
That’s how my morning was.

How’s yours?
