Big Mood

so, y’know the time, right,
when you’re tired? 
kind-of, like, all the time?
and you can’t even properly —
what’s the word? — rhyme?
what time is that:
like, when you’re just,
uh, defeated?
feeling sorta rough and depleted?
like, maybe i just need
another cuppa joe?
man, i dunno!

Day 20’s prompt for NaPoWriMo was basically to incorporate informal speech or ‘slang’ into your poem. I tried to sling the slang! This poem is all up in my feels after a long weekend – my brain feels like sludge.
