Day 173, I knew this day would get here...

...when I had to use the word epesiotomy in a poem... thanks a bunch Josh Pettigrew! Honestly thought I think there is more to work with here than with hippo and tortellini, those are coming up :(

The day was inundated with triviality
it left me feeling futile, overwhelmed
the to-do-list a zealous kudzu vine
its roots strangling joy from my hours
I'm a discombobulated disaster
Like Punxatawney Phil yanked from his hole
just to fulfill irrelevant lore

but then there is his smile
an instant epesiotomy on a too tight heart
a small infant joy given breath
