A Heart's Day Off - March 12, 2022

sleep in

or a lazy heart

do nothing

or a bored heart

try something new

hang out with the boys

let its hair down

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
