it is just another day 
with not much to say—  
so I pick up my thoughts 
make a crumpled ball 
to simply toss away 

from the early ticking of the clock 
through the sliding of the day 
tepid flows each striking hour 
measuring listless, mundane minutes
it is just another day

someone ought to strum 
the silent strings on this violin
so I pick it up

but it responds 
with a doleful, grainy screech 
instead of a soulful melody

I just hold it limply by the neck 
run my fingers along its shape 
and like my crumpled thoughts 
I toss it on the bed

there is really nothing to say 
the words have melted away 
into the stump of last night’s candle 
shapeless, obscure, worthless…

just another day
