A Nod Here And There
Stop at the crest of hump day
to survey the majesty of a week half-done
flesh responds to the air’s gentle nudges
is this the right direction?
Fancy yourself a handsome cut piece of glass
on the Bureau of your lover’s heart
dismiss the idea – there’s more than one way
to skin a cat – flee to the next world
when will happiness make sense on a Wednesday?
Feels wonderful saying it, though
all that stomach effort to form a word
that takes the wind out of our sails
and puts it to
