First World Problems


Cold air of winter nights
Breath a visible mist
Gloves protect from frostbite
From fingertips to wrist

Ringing phone in my hand
Alerts important call
Now a flaw that’s unplanned
Gloves create a wall

Screen is shielded from a touch
This call I must now take
Removing hand from warmth’s clutch
Tough decision I must make

Snack attack

Squeaky clean with a hint of mint
Colored white, plaque is absent

Placed the brush by the sink
Now my stomach starts to think

A grumble calls from deep within
Hiding where my hunger’s been

What to do? The taste won’t please
Why does my stomach want to tease?

Hunger waits as I ignore
Thoughts of food and drink galore

With resistance I make a snack
And I brushed again, I’m back on track
