Fog over all spread’s confusion. Is this for real?
Up is more than just up right it’s a struggle to remain standing. Still?
Each step a struggle, what foot goes - brain fog - In front of the other?
Left then right wobble, teeter don’t fall right then left?
Step stutter step wobble stand in place and wait. Now where am I?
Am I where I was when the fog came in? Standing upright waiting, move. Forword?
Just another step my destination in site. The door. Open!
Move though, stay up right, sway, stand, wait in the fog for the boys. Are they in?
Every morning’s the same as the fog waits, I stand wobble, teeter, and step?
I let the dogs out another time. Another step, keep going one more!
Back in bed. The fog fades. Again, a day begins first thing in the morning.
