caffeine

you wake too early, dreaming of coffee
stumble into the kitchen to brew fresh coffee

sat at your desk, the morning sun 
hurts your eyes as he drinks his coffee

screen flashes on, and you start working
fuelling your brain with another coffee

blue screen of death, control alt del
ad infinitum, wait, drink more coffee

play your piano, Dan, and sing,
dona nobis pacem, no need for coffee

displaced
a triolet

in a bed that's not my own
stuck in a smelly room
I cannot find my mobile phone

here in this bed that's not my own
I feel lost and alone
devoured by a sense of doom

because this bed is not my own
here in this stinking room

more majestic than
its neighbours
the tree's song invites
the travellers

Thank, Mark.

I ended up going over to my friend's publisher's website and read some or their blurbs for the fantasy novels they recently published. That gave me a feel for what they wanted, and then I just wrote it. It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I had a framework, I read the MS, and it wasn't my own novel, so I had the added advantage of social emotional distance.
