The Seasonal Change of the Schedule at the Y. A Poem by Danny P. Barbare

The Seasonal Change of the Schedule at the Y
 
The
sign
on
the
glass
door
 
reflects
the
seasons
 
like
the
fields
and
trees
 
so
the
day
is
served
better
 
by
the
hinges
and
the
tic
of
the
clock.
 
 
Cleaning the House Before Company
 
Straightening
up
there
and
here
 
oh
my,
so
much
stuff
everywhere
 
though
at
least
it
looks
like
someone
lives
here
 
I
pace
myself
before
company
comes
 
and
have
time
to
comb
my
hair.
 
 
The Doctor’s Office
 
Sitting
in
the
waiting
room
 
a
patient
who
is
patient
 
knows
 
the
world
depends
upon
a
one
simple
smile
 
that
quickly
spreads
throughout
the
doctor’s
office
 
as
time
goes
by
 
and
the
door
opens.
