A Day Off/On
(9/12/2021)


Brother Bollocks
awakes
on Sunday morning
quite similar
to how he will
on a workday

he leans
over
to set
the alarm

begins
the 24 hour
countdown
to his Monday
routine

gets up

gets dressed

leaves
the house
at the same
time
as he will
tomorrow

driving
to the grocery
store
instead
of the plant

the rest
of his free
hours
are mainly spent
getting ready
for the workweek

always
watching
the clock

thinking about
the coming
job schedule

until
he is a day
away
from clocking
out
the next

and the
cycle
truly
begins
again

Brother Bollocks
really enjoys
his time off

on Saturdays
