lazy Sunday, post-semester
stuck in limbo between exams
overslept till I felt under
Deliveroo or Foodpanda?
dabao’d white rice, roasted dishes
connived onset of food coma
beckoned to bed, sneaky snail crawl
Youtube binge or SingPoWriMo?
fifteen minutes, then three hours
tried to poem out a poem
unclosed tabs on half-open books
dinner time or clock illusion?
West Mall, brand new Malaysia Chiak!
shared rice, kway teow, curry noodles
blinding red blur of passing cars
more Youtube binge or brief workout?
beckoned by that red play button
within a glimpse, the lights go off
day well spent or one day wasted?
