a small victory

sometimes defeat is
waking up in the same bed
every morning
at 6am


sometimes defeat is
trying to roll cheap cigarettes
that are too damp
to comply


sometimes defeat is
sitting at the computer
unable to write
what’s trapped inside


sometimes defeat is
scrambling to get outthe door
to another pointless day
of work


we don’t always see the battle
but we rarely feel
the thrill

today none of those things happened
so i guess
this is what victory
feels like
