sit

a long day
of mainly sitting
and now
I sit some more
staring
at nothing
in particular
as my body
seems to fall
into a lightly-drugged
stupor
leaving my brain
hanging around
half awake
half asleep
somewhere in between
and the clock ticks
the wind whips
round the chimney
the rain raps
on the window
the amp hisses sadly
with no sound pumped through it
floorboards creak
a car passes by
my chin sinks
to my chest
and my breath
slides in and out
inhale
exhale
slow and steady
and this is all there is
right now
too tired
to think
or plan
imagine
or wonder
just sit
and
stare
and
listen
