Day 231

September 6, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I had a family gathering to attend yesterday and, while I mostly enjoyed it, I did have to go roughly 6 hours without a cigarette, which inspired the first couple of lines of today’s poem.

Conditioned Response
A growing impatience,
a gathering rage.
An outdated trigger
that won’t disengage.
A dysfunctional relic
from too long ago,
that has outlived its purpose
and now has to go.
