It’s nearly two in the morning and I have a headache
It seems like I’ve had it all day – an uncomfortable passenger
I can’t remember exactly when I picked it up
I just know that it’s superfluous existence is a challenge
I can’t seem to get rid of it.
I think I had too many deep thoughts today
Thoughts that made for sibling bonding and great conversation
But opened the door to this pounding
It’s like an ache one gets in their muscles after exercising
When they haven’t exercised in a long time
I need to have more stimulating conversations
Or maybe quit smoking.
Flies are a pestilence
They’re aggravating and annoying
I’m in the garage smoking a cigarette
plagued with thoughts of quitting
plagued and irritated by the insistence of these flies
Why must you continue landing on me?
Is this life’s way of pushing me closer to my goal of quitting?
I’d like to think the answer is yes and for that I’m somewhat grateful to life’s plan
But I’m far too annoyed by the mere existence of flies to be solely appreciative.
