The Week Begins

In one move, I
Push through the swinging door
Spin my chair around
Drop my bag on the seat
Slip my coat off my shoulders
Flip on the power strip
Brush past for the light switch
Turn on the computer
And
Breathe.
Another day.

Add "check voice mail" and there's my morning, too.

This is the first day of the rest of your week. Have a good one.

I can just see that whirl of motion, and then the pause.
