verse

Routine

by David Boski

it all drains you
. . .
the arguing
the fighting
the menial tasks
the day to day
the job
the relationships
your friends
your family
the drugs
the alcohol
the madness
the death
the news
social media
phone calls
voicemails
emails
text messages
love
hate
sympathy
empathy
apathy
stress
depression
and so on
and so forth
and there’s nothing
we can do
about it
