Manual Labor

pic

I’m doing
manual
labor,
and
breaking
sweat
glands
from
the pains
from
the
day’s
end.

Better
days don’t
carry
this much
weight,
and
my night
just
winked
twice
and
licked
her lips
in
my direction.

See,
I’m
in the middle
of
making
smaller
rocks
from the biggest
rocks,
but
I’m
dancing
in
the rain
because you’re
outside
the
gate
with
two open
arms.
