Ignore Your Snooze

Alarmed by fuzzy Bon Jovi
booming out of a crackling alarm clock,
startled and groaning
about the first day of the semester,

The first day is always the worst,
I blurt,
searching for some semblance of alertness,
daunted by the task for finding new classes
and fumbling for glasses hiding undercover,
wireframe needle in a haystack snatched
furtively in the sudden aftermath of consciousness,
much needed in the wake of skipped breakfast
famished adventurer hastily equipped
a set of fresh ventures
ready to be sipped,
carpe diem is the name of today's drink.

  1. I like it! The second stanza's words sound similar - lots of assonance and consonance which make them all mix well.
