Shaken & Stirred

I set aside a day for pleasing me.
Of late my life has been amassing stress.
Responding to alarms from family
and culture wars has dimmed my happiness.
The heat and drought increase calamity,
and every treat I try delivers less.
I’ve cleared my slate of work and task attacks,
but I’m too agitated to relax.

(Ottava Rima)
