Life is work; (and three day weekends)

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 3:42 am

It all escalates, then escalates again,
then escalates again,
…and then the season begins
and everyone’s on the run
as fast as a purple martyn or swallow

Three day weekends in the summer
last longer than the whole rest of the summer.
One bright July morning turns into
October 15 trying to get 6 schools
of advertizing out by 4 o clock, then
feeling glad to have it done by 6,
then it’s november, and the purple martyns migrate?

Moments later it’s midJanuary at work,
but the three day weekends continue to fan out
at the wonderful human livable pace
and the purple martyns (or swallows?) dance happily in the air
