Minutes

The minutes drip

Drip

Drip

Slow

Annoying

Into a proverbial sink

Not too far away

Disturbing the mind’s peace

Rendering the spirit restless

For motion,

Escape

A breath of fresh air

A break from the clicking

A release from fingertips

Clinging to keys

That open no doors

to the outside world

Only windows

Boxed in a virtual world

visually appealing

emotionally void

The seconds drip

Drip

Drip

As the world outside waits

Patiently

For me to emerge

Like waking from a dream

Squinting in the sunlight

Comforted by the warmth

Defrosting my air-conditioned body

Transforming me

Launching me forward

On a  tired highway

Flashing by
