Poem #2,735 | On Waking After Disturbances

Mike Bell/ September 13, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

I am curious about this
creep of pain –
my feet-
first cramping & then a
catch up in my hands –
they are gloved in finer
discomfort –
lock-up &
stiffness grips –
work is
an unavoidable game –
I play under deadline’s
rule of time –
clients do
not know of my grip by
hidden-ish difficulties –
& sleep is less easy too
[an inconvenience] –
this hour before I work
at others’ calls I review
woken-to disturbances
