Day Poems
- Christopher R. Moore

The Big Race is near
It's a 10K, maybe 5
Have I no legs?

	Tea leaves ring the sink
	I get up to brush my hair
	The ocean has no mind.

			The teacher speaks to me
			I listen
			She's French.
				I am quite tired
				The book is left open on
				the table; a fly ponders.
			Words fill the classroom
			Figures litter the paper
			I can't pay attention.

	The cup is empty
	Coffee grounds on the counter
	The car speeds off.
