Low Fuel Day - A Poem

I can't quilt today
all the cotton batting is
packed in my head

Not "one of those days"
Not as bad as all that
Just a little
lethargy,
listlessness,
laziness

My car isn't running on all spark plugs lately
The mechanic is waiting on some parts
Perhaps I'm having sympathy pains

The brain says - Do something
So I sit on the couch with
a blanket, a teen, a dog, a cat
Watching Green Day shout out
what I don't have the energy
to shout

Guilt flutters up pompously.
whispers sarcastically - I meant,
something useful

Pulling the blanket over my head
muffles my answer -

bite me
