New Guy
(12/11/2020)


new
job

new
hours

new
routine

not
a fun adjustment
to make
at any
age

but at 61
it definitely
sucks

they
look
at me

seeing
my gray
hair

wondering
understandably
if I can
keep up

if I can
contribute

I wonder
as well

as I
have time
to wonder
today

on a rare
day off

on a morning
that I was able
to sleep in
again

all
the way
to
4 am
