Enigma Weekend Edition: Poetry by Kim Harris


"Alarm Awakens"
by Kim Harris

Alarm awakens,
Time begins again,
Drowsy zombies
overtake our once lively
bodies.
Roam the halls for the
fifth
time this week.
Think, write, leave, repeat.
The purpose is the object
of question.
The routine becomes
engrained
in our tired minds.
We yearn
for a
break.
To rest our minds and hands.
But,
our request isn’t fulfilled,
And we start over again
the next
week.
