Too easy to blame (Day 308)

It would be 
too easy 
to blame this 
discontent 
on long-necked bottles 
and midnight rivers 
dusted with 
pollen and stars, 
too simple 
to make up 
excuses for 
the dwindling daylight 
and interminable 
weekend afternoons. 
Better by far
to face each hour 
boldly until 
one 
   by 
      one 
they slink back 
into their bespoke containers
so you can say 
fuck it 
and get on with things.
