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.
