Mo(u)rning After

Wash away the weariness,
The dreariness, the teariness
And bleariness from your eyes;
Splash, and soak, the sunken sockets

Scrub and scour the
Soap-sudded, stubbled troubles;
Shave the sleep from your soul.

Stroke silk-smooth skin;
Fingertip-feel for flaws in the flesh
And trim any trace of tire-taxed transgressors.

Dry depression’s dampened dermal domicile
Cool off, calm down, and
Contemplate your conquered consciousness
