I indulged myself today:/ I hit the snooze button. / Just a couple times, nothing / excessive, nothing decadent. / Just enough to remind myself that / I didn’t have to be anywhere /at any particular time. / Not today. Not most days. / The alarm goes off;/ /think, “This day belongs to me, /as did yesterday, as will tomorrow. ’’/I sigh like a long-haul trucker/ata rest area urinal, —from Ode to My Snooze Button by American slam poet Jack McCarthy
