Paralyzed, staggering
heat, de la jour-
mind dragging,
catatonic stupor,
sirens calling
cool,
cozy,
conditioned
corners, relax-
take a load
off…

Inspiration, where-
fore art thou,
so slothful
in coming?
Searching skies,
hypnotized
waving winds,
drifting clouds-
sluggish slackers!

Car riding,
stuck, dreary slump-
ing along pitch-
covered highways.
shambling sheep,
counting.
Sacramento
snooze,
Sacramento
blues.
