Meditation with a side of coffee

On the weekends,
we can fall apart
and Monday morning
we piece it back together –
maybe meditation
with a side of coffee
or medication
and a dose of
booze.

Either way,
our smiles are
just as fake
and our eyes
are still full of
lust and greed
and all the other
sins we committed
on the Sabbath.

I can almost hear
the prayers
of my coworkers
and I wonder
if they’re for me.

If they are,
no one’s
listening.
