I’m not like them

The morning arrives
once more to animate me
it pushes in, uninvited
and drags me into another day
of compliance
sitting and waiting and creating
nothing
while plagued with small talk politeness
at best
phony concern or voyeuristic interest
at worst
Chemicals make it vaguely tolerable,
but there’s never enough
Because I am not like them.
