I had a Rough Day

It’s already the second of March.
I’m a day behind on the easy stuff.
And what’s worse, this day
seems not to want me to catch up.

No poetry no prose got posted
yesterday.
No verses edited yet today
as, important stuff is in my way
to execute them.

Slightly under the weather
I’d like to self-diagnose
but can’t quite place the ailment.
I talk to my stomach to barter for
a break in my discomfort.

This morning’s business quickly expedited
had me off to next things in
less than thirty minutes.
At home, papers got filed and
computer folders were created.
I even prepared some documents
updates and ones newly-made to populate them.

So much for the busy work,
then came time to create something.
Every damned thing jumped ship
including my creativity
and this is what I was left with.

I’m sorry and I’ll try again tomorrow, if not later.
