Suburban Saturday

When Jesus Christ himself descends
and that will be when all time

Clock watching?
it has me by the second hand,

I agree to
win one, deal one, buy one, steal one,
seal one in an envelope and hope to God
that it arrives before the last post.

Was it Saturday?
I couldn’t say
the days all melt into one
but we go on
I think.
