I Will Never Understand The Alarm Clocks Of Better Living by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Always trying to move beyond yourself,
that is a lot of pressure.

With each word, each book,
each action…

No one else seems to feel
that pressure.

I will never understand the alarm clocks
of better living.

Waking up
before the sun.

Sitting in traffic
for 30 years or more
to get to a job
you hate

to afford
a family you hate
even more

the same way
spawning salmon
struggle upstream
against all odds

just to
die.

Ryan Quinn Flanagan presently resides in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada with an acute case of cabin fever after another long Canadian winter.  He dreams of warm places and warmer women.
