2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 27

I apologize for the late prompt this morning. I'm battling either a severe cold or the flu and was having trouble even getting out of bed this morning to take medicine and drink liquids. Sigh.

For today's prompt, take the phrase "In the (blank) of (blank)," replace the blanks with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Some possible titles might include: "In the Heat of the Night," "In the Heat of the Moment," "In the Middle of a Heated Argument," etc. Of course, you don't have to use the word "heat" in your poem title; blame my fever for coming up with all those sample titles.

Here's my attempt:

"In the poem of the poem"

There's a string that connects one can
to another, but I can't make
out any words. I know trying
doesn't mean doing, but I keep
making my bed in the morning
and dreaming throughout the day. I'm not
sure what else I can really do.
