When It Happens

On a day when life restarted,
I noticed the light in my office shower
Burned out.
I noticed this indistinct happening
Just two weeks after learning
My old colleague, the man who once held the office, had died.

I’m not going to tell maintenance,
Wouldn’t it be cool if it came back on without their help?

On this same day, I sat with my annoyed dog,
His annoyance directed my way since I was working all day.
Moby took over Pandora and I thought of my running friends
Who have been gone for far too long.
I want to run with them again,
But I’m too scared.

Overly cautious?
Could be…
I’m not going to risk it
It’ll be cool when we finally get back together.
