Holding on

The more it’s grabbed the
harder it is to hold on.
Let the time just be.


Close call at work this year

The sun rose at 7:59 this AM.

Tomorrow, Saturday,
would have been the first day
of this year
that I began my workday
in the dark.

I mean literally,
of course,
the figurative part is constant,
of course.

Sunrise is at 8:01
preceded by the moon
howlingly full at 1:23.

But, like the brazen moon,
the ebb of time is short lived
as daylight savings time
ends the very next day

so, come Monday,
the chance at a night shift this year
will be none.
None at all.

But for the timing of a weekend
and the halting lack of a second
it never happened.
