Halfway There

Heavy traffic. Wednesday night.

Morning really - Thursday snook in

Two hours ago over another coffee.

Discount the day. Confusing

To go to bed and wake up

And it hasn't changed.

Day-behind jet-lag feeling

Will last 'til Friday, that's really Saturday

For you at least.

Body clock ticks backwards.

Concert goers going home

A stream of lights that break the night.

Happy faces, shouting loud and hoarse

Rock concert hangovers tomorrow

That's already your today.

Traffic slows. The light stream falters.

'Halfway there' fading along with

The fumes of fuel and midlife crisis.

Sunrise clouds brighten

Lunch, for me at least.

Camera clicks loud in my quiet world.

Living on a Prayer stuck in my head,

Body clock providing the backwards beat.

Countdown to bed as the world wakes up.
