And then  I wake up, a few minutes before 

The auditory fatigue, that is my alarm tone

“Let’s do this!” I say, ready to conquer the day

Baseless zeal, energy source strung to a realm

Owned by death’s cousin.

 

And then I wake up,

“Well, that certainly explains the mid-week energy”

The clock shows time beyond my understanding;

Oversleeping so far gone in my memory

In parallel with Big Foot, a myth.

 

And then I wake up, just as my alarm rings

“Okay, fine, hilarious” lucid dreams had me on lock

Time to really wake up,

Facing yet another day that withholds secrets,

All set, time for my dramatic exit,

And then I wake up.
