The Urge

Deadline fetish,
well worn furrow in the veins.
blood bottleneck; the pressure.
I'll fill like a marigold gag,
like a percocet allergy,
alert, ballooning into action.
Edging, overwork, the short pants of pre-sleep,
a firm note on the desk,
instructions issued, issuing four hours from now,
200 words, then, and thus far.
