Waiting Room Poem #6. A couple of minutes

Written while experiencing caffeine jitters in a waiting room.

I could sure go
for some of those fries
I hate feeling shaky
even if it is too much coffee

MCs and radio DJs love
to amp up the energy
through volume

They’ve definitely had
too much of something

How long can they keep this up?

A stretch or a scratch
might help break up the afternoon

The white-noise machines
are doing their job

How long have I been here?
