“Saturday AM”


“Saturday AM”
A Poem By Thomas Park

Early in the morning
The birds mated
Chirping loudly outside my window

Traffic sounds faded
To ambient noise, a dull hum

My pipes sang
Liquid, guttural
Chorus of water on porcelain

A celebration, loaf of bread
Jar of peanut butter
From the Shop and Save
(Food stamp benefits today)

Minimum wage, but Saturday
A whole day without organizing
Stooping, placing
My work as a shelver on reprieve

As the light shone in through slits
It fell on my waking body
A whole 24 hours to be free
A richer man there never was
