Ease Part 2

Today was something else

The rat race can be so hard

But after a two-hour delay and

The blank stares of students

With the late start malaise

I took to my afternoon commute.

Getting home

Before two callers to sports talk radio

Could make their innane points

About the state of the Eagles

After the trade of a very good player

I set out with job number one.

Now the dog is walked,

His fur dry after braving the winter rain

His legs tucked in nap position

After working over the rope ball

Like Sugar Ray giving Hagler

A crazy flurry at the end of their big fight.

I thought I’d change it up a little

Sipping a chai latte on the couch

Instead of the normal dark roast

Because as I am finding right now

Both go well with Rocky Mountain Way

And this relaxed aura

My short commute and easy attitude

Allow me on this afternoon

Before the next big March snowstorm.
