I shall try harder
even with bloodied nails, dirtied knees, one or more pills, I know
I must (if everyone can do it
with bloodshot eyes, stupid lies (“yes, I can do it”), crumpled shirts)
yes, all for the love of crossed-off check lists, muliple digits, title beside names (yay, nobody no more)
it’s a contest right here:
who gets the least z’s but completes the most tasks? who?

I don’t see my name.
One of these days,
I shall try harder:
bloodied nails,
dirtied knees,
so much pills.
