A Heart's Day Off - March 12, 2022

let a tired heart

sleep in


or a lazy heart

do nothing


or a bored heart

try something new

be a little delinquent

hang out with the boys

let its hair down

go a little crazy


even love needs a break

now and then from the stress

and expectations heaped on it

in a world so desperate for it


in moderation of course

with a watch-glancing chaperone

wearing a T-shirt that says


Beware that the hot time in winter

doesn’t lead to a hotter day in hell
