purblind joy
at an unexpected half-day
earned at the elbow of late-night overtime
Jack pulls rank dismissively
buries me till midnight
but foals a day off!

the day’s middle-hours exploited
her middle-thighs
wondrous to behold
or hold
whichever comes

the sky the shade
of blue-white the sun
still regnant
Burbank on the radio
accompanied by Pogues and the scent
of laundry in the middle-distance.

The maples are budding and
I hear birds I can’t recall--
things are happenin’ jack!
