A change of routine

I have always

idolised routine,


carved up neatly

into regimented slots,

Allotted times to eat,

A drink after 5pm,

Read before bed,

Write in the morning,

Each and every activity

carefully fitted in,

By me

the captain of my destiny,

A slave to the clock,

And yet,

I can still create,

Fondant art abounds,

Poetry pours forth,

Stories come together,

So what,

Will I create

with a change in routine?
