Tanka T074

I suffer about
Two hours of jet lag each time
I return to work –
Living days off work on a
Night owl’s Circadian clock

Notes to this poem…

Any person who is not a morning person could relate to this. It’s not drastic, just made to sound drastic. Besides, jet lag for me is physical, not mental or psychological. I wouldn’t be able to get out there and do physical workouts like I would be able to after work. However, mentally and psychologically, I’m actually pretty sharp in the mornings.

The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
