Deadline

 

Working to a deadline,

a rocky deadline train -

wrapped in shame,

pulled back tight

waiting for a glass...

of vision,

out of focus

so fierce.

I couldn’t catch the antidote,

poisoned where I stood,

with a clock-work tick tock

of extreme pressure

dripping through my veins.

Ready to wrestle?

Let’s do this!

I get a sense of anxiety looming with November only around the corner.
