Retired

Up each day around 6:00am
too many days
cereal, juice
and a long drive
in traffic
playing the part
airplanes
hotels
meetings
suits
dry cleaners
so today
it is good
that
that is gone now
and that he wakes
most days
when his body tells him to
not to the sound of an “alarm”
and that he takes dogs to vets
and goes on vacations
and jokes that everyday
is like the weekend to him
as he rightfully so
loses track of time
