after a long weekend of illness

some business settled but nothing fully resolved--

and the same pressure for sustenance pressing pressing

and the same dashed hopes and fortified resentments--

what a life!

and yet--

let the unconsciously fortunate talk of positive thinking

unaware of their blessings or some future life

where they won't be allowed their ease of talk--

for me these troubles are so long established

that I see nothing amiss--I'm used to them

and frankly--wouldn't know how to live any other way
