Just published today on the Drabble. I love the title


I am as flat today
—as a peanut butter sandwich
without the jelly,
—as a side of peas
at the greek dinner down the road
—cooked beyond color,
—as Muzak.

People are born as I am today.
—Minds as dull
as Kansas in corn.
—Fireworks gone matchless.
What sparks us?
What creates the ambition
to put one foot in front of another?

I take to my easy chair
with that book I never read
past the opening paragraph.
I have just enough energy
to ponder those deep thoughts
before my nap kicks in.

    You make a case for prevagen
    They used to call it doldrums
    Maybe the nap will rejuvenate
    Or a sunny spring day will come soon
    Hope so

      me too. we got in the habit of watching the network news at 6:30. 10 minutes of news, 5 minutes of two-headed cows, and 15 minutes of prevagen commercials. hi, my name is Robert Strictler…
