The Second Day

By Michael Marrotti

Combating
these cold sweats
with timely
hot showers

Sipping
coffee that’s
as black
and bleak
as my future

Twisting
and turning
no closer to
a comfortable
place on this
dilapidated
mattress

Becoming
just as redundant
as these other
boring writers

My authenticity
is what separates
me from the rest

I’d like to have
a new subject
or preferably
a confirmation
via text
but I haven’t
found a way
to write away
this pain
