forever at home

project to project

a workday is run

 

lunchtime     breaktime

breakfast      a repast at home

 

round the round cycle

’til the clock says it’s done

 

project by project

one done    by one

 

day labor    working

’til all of it’s    gone

 

nonsense in shirking

not there for the fun

 

trek passed a graveyard

on the way home

 

espy cantilevered 

disheveled tombstone

 

each soul a separate

each soul alone

each one    day labor

day labor    now gone

 

project on project

each project goes on

 

’til the last time

then rest time

forever in stone.

 

the rest time

for rest time

thereafter the home.
