seeing snakes

i’ve reached 1 in,

you play a snake

on his lunch break…

it captivates like voodoo,
now lunch has turned to dinner.

it’s so addictive i virtually

forget to feed the real me,

so at least i’m getting thinner

but it also makes me jittery

cuz i’m seeing snakes now,
constantly, in my periphery

too weak to even speak

energy is seeping
rapidly awaytired

i didn’t get
much sleep today
and not last night
and not all week

and i’m too weak
to even speak
say what?
an hour or so to nap
would be
all right and maybe
good for me
and energize me
to go on
tonight to play the Sims til dawn.
