Written Alone at Work, 5:00 AM

Standard

I’m not sure
          Just how many
More cigarettes
                I can smoke
         Or
How much longer I
            Can pace around
The cavernous rooms
              Of this here house
        Or
If I can go on
          Inflicting my haggard
Cobwebbed brain
                  With poetry
         To speed
    The terrible crawl
                 Of the clock
      Its interminable
                Ticktock Ticktock
Keeping the beat
           In an orchestra
                                       Of boredom
