[POEM] morning swarm

morning swarm

in my brain the words swarm
there’s no context and the noise
outside my body is too loud
children voices
no concern for quiet
or the sleeping bodies of others
or me, trying to capture thoughts
quickly appearing like fireflies
in the night sky

to compensate
i drink more coffee
bite an already chewed nail
finger scroll through social media
text with a friend

and give up on any formulation of these
swarming thoughts
