WORK POEM
by chad parenteau,, jamaica plain, ma

Early winter morning
reliably unwanted
walk on crow’s feet
resolute cold sore.

Grey hares hopping glee
sick with morning cheer
sun on their speed dial
stomping seconds.

You sip your coffee,
They remind you out
run
compass needle

slurp premature
spat swallow
first day’s
little death.
