Tediousity

funny_sobriety_test
time spent mining
fragments
of fractured conversation
eavesdropped
in unmetered parking lots

pays no rent

trespassing faithlessly
with good intent and
unladen shopping cart
fails to appease
avid genius –

rent grows arrears

those words were meant
for softer ears and fairer
features – knowing looks
which cure despair; the
tediousity just aches

like unsublimated hunger pangs
