it’s a workday

the snow rains in late January
the driveway drains white while the road shuffles CD sounds of skipping tires
there is contemplation over coffee – wait or shovel now?
write a boring pome (yes pome) or watch the weather changer over 8 hours?


is a workday


if the writing will not come
physical work may as well be completed
let the open line – dead line – radio show play to its own voice
it can be the ruling boredom for the next 2 hours


is a workday
