Camel train

What a great start to the day,
but then I woke
the dreams like the night faded
away into one more mind numbing
Wednesday
and
it’s okay
ok?
it won’t last forever
only forever lasts that long.

But I really don’t mind
it’s only one day a week
it’s just the one day that reminds me
of why my bones creak
time
marches on,
the army of one
triumphant.
