trite expressions that seem
to echo so endlessly

I've left it all behind this time

The alarm clock dawn
methodical in its wringing,
starving, stealing time
so stealthily that you hardly notice
until one day you wake up faded,
to a jaded, gaunt and hungry hue.

To be set adrift like some Coltrane riff
When need's an endless song

Can't tell you where I'll be tomorrow
