I Missed Work Today

Outside I hear a barking dog
I look and see but cats.
There, where clouds used to be
were piles of formal hats.

I turned on the radio
to drown out the noise
but, it only leaked puddles
of tiny, tiny boys.

I tried the tap
which dripped the blues
then, I combed my hair
with my shoes

I studied the mirror
and shaved my face
But, I ended up bare
in some other place.

Clearly today wasn't turning out
as I'd pictured in my head
so, I opened the door and walking out
dove right back into bed.
