Smart phone

To bed early,
sleep is now a commodity
to be traded against
work, laundry, fun, and
the rest.

Midnight, alarm goes off.
Apparently my mom’s birthday.
But, wait, my sleepy thoughts
untagle that it isn’t for awhile,
days away.

Now I’m awake, and thinking.
Why would my calendar think
it is today?
No, a year ago I set this alarm
to remind me to get a gift.

I open the app, and start browsing,
and slowly dozing,  back and forth,
eyes open and close, then seal,
until the real alarm buzzes at 4:45
“What now?! Oh, yeah, …life.”
