    Skipping School
    By Reid Baer

    It is sinus weather today;
    overcast skies are to blame, they
    make me sleepy so I dose in
    a kind way – getting up to eat
    a little - then onto the couch
    half awake and up again to
    take the puppy out where it is
    starting to rain - then flopping back
    into bed, my lovely old bed,
    where dreams take me away resting
    uninvolved in anything of
    purpose content with the mundane
    with only a whisper of shame
    that I could be doing something
    more and more things just stay the same.
