DEJA SUNDAY
(3/19/17)

work

groceries

yardwork

housework

workout

I've been
here
before

I've always
been here

without
the change
of seasons
the day
would seem
a karmic
rewind

my life
expiring
one menial chore
at a time

still
I know
that one day
the job
will be gone

I will
no longer
be able
to drive

to push
a mower

to push
a vacuum

to do
a pushup

I shall lie
supine

incapacitated

yearning
for one more
minor task
to accomplish

one more
more drop
of satisfied
sweat

instead
of the cold
clammy skin
of dying

hoping
at least
to labor
in my final
dream
