"Work Day"


"Work Day"

Today I did everything backwards--

Over an apocalyptic eruption of dinos and cars, I stepped

Away from “urgent” deadlines

I declined their call

Sipping tea, perusing poetry,

Baking peanut butter and chocolate bars

[For tonight’s reunion will be sweet.]


I am seeking peace over prosperity

Because that’s work too.
