Sonnet 35: Lost in Routine

By Matthew Paul Olmos

and how do we spend out days, lost in routine
taking subway cars and internet screens
slight difference in one day what's in between
then back over that bridge, only to do it again

and how do we let each day passing just pass
how many hours do we do what we love
how many days do we put behind us just past
an there must be some plane or elevation just above

who gets to live each striking minute just struck
breathing like how they want to
who gets to sleep only in positions for themselves they've cut
sleeping only at night or when they are done doing what they do

there are a finite numbers of times you'll get before we lay to set,
an why do we waste them lazy, an held, an so indebted in debt
