It’s a starting point



Monday
the unstoppable force of the week goes on
I’m going on too,

my eyes came alive at a quarter to five
and
my brain followed suit after coffee

but
it’s dark now and Summer somehow has
disrobed
Autumnal dresses in gold brocade to
promenade down this avenue,

it’s a fine ‘how do you do’
when you don’t know where
the time has gone or where
you’re going, but I’m going too.
