I'm tired of waking at dawn to walk the dog and staying up late to walk him again, because that's when we won't collapse from the desert sun.
I'm tired of Mike's employer not paying him (it's been 2 months now) and we're so broke we can't buy school supplies for my kids, who start on again on Monday.
I'm tired looking outside at the beautiful sunshine and being crushed by the overwhelming heat when you step out the door.
I'm tired of things breaking, (drawers, mirrors, dishes, medicine cabinets)
I'm tired of things leaking, (the toilet, the tub, faucets everywhere).
F*@k I'm tired.
*Thank you for indulging me with my crappy poem.
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
