"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

A professional yawn

Day 10: Steal the first line from another poem. I browsed The The Poetry until I found something that stuck out. It was from Elizabeth Clark Wessel's The House Wakes.

no big subjects today
too tired to consider
the effects of my own dialogue
too tired to wonder
what would be different
if i ever got
a full eight hours
too tired to reflect upon
some small concession
i might have made
so many years ago
too tired for words
and most certainly
too tired for punctuation

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
Johnson & Jonson, Wow
