I am in my malaise phase.

“Malaise phase” is my favorite phrase

I could say it for days and days

When I read my books and watch my plays

When I stumble around with my coffee and creamer

and drive around town in my unwashed Beamer

When I lay in bed in my cotton pajamas

and stare for hours at dull dioramas

My eyelids are heavy

My shoulders are stiff

I haven’t taken a bath in a week

If anyone asks, if anyone notices

Tell them I have hung my coat up

I have flung my wallet and tossed my keys

I am simply and purely in a brand new phase

Succinctly described by the term ” malaise”.
