POEM: two-minute warning

two-minute warning

in two minutes my alarm will go off / I’m writing this intentionally with a baseball game on in the background / seems like it might be a stretch to get a poem out of this / but I’ve gotten weirder things from less material / (he’s allowed just one run on five hits) / soon I’ll be back in my van / not sure for how long / I think a couple months / it’s getting warmer so it won’t be that bad / (it nicked him, grazed his arm) / the alarm is ringing so it’s time for my Zoom
