After Work

 

Full echoed sigh

think again –

to feel and breathe

to let my soul take a moment

 

Outside the nasty shell

away from the seas and sorrows

away from the nose and noise and smell

Away away

 

Oh to think again –

to find quiet uninterrupted life

the sun filtering through unwashed panes older than pain

a tiny fly fluttered to death

All fossil and no buzz

 

Thinking thinking

 

Neurons firing for the first time in weeks

finally my brain works through the fuzz

recovers from the exertions of the body

My hands can move again

the muscles accustomed to the pain

my legs can fold again

accustomed to the ladder steps

 

my mind can breathe

and echo and sigh and think and write
