blacking out in central park

it’s too hot and you don’t drink enough water

you see the joggers and bikers go by and

wish you could be like them. active. committed

filled with drive desire and determination

instead you’re just a lazy daydreamer

stoned and sweaty. stagnant. addled.

is it too late for me? you think, as the sun

brightens to blinding and the leaves turn dark
