Coffee with Bob Marley

12:30 p.m. on a Wednesday
Halfway through the week
The struggle is very real

Hot coffee in large amounts
— and a Bob Marley playlist —
Are the only distractions
Keeping me going today

Can’t believe this year is STILL here
January 2020 feels like a lifetime ago
Yup, bated optimism and discontent
Splashed with incredulity

“Everything’s gonna be all right”
— sings Bob Marley, the prophet —
His voice is from a different world
But for a brief moment, I believe him.

A poem by Jason S. Sullivan, 11-11-20
