It is the second day
after my vacation and I am
still not worth a damn.
Post-trip thoughts fill
my mind and I cannot get
my head around the paperwork
stacked neatly beside me.
I sit in the chair and daydream
of not being here, of just
a few more days of enjoyment.
There is so much fun to be
had in the world, and so little
time in this life to take advantage
of it. I stare aimlessly at the white
and blue computer screen. It is
almost lunch time, the work day
half over, then home to rest
for a few hours before starting
all over again. I think that day
three will probably be much like
today has been. I sigh deeply.
