the st kilda road lifestyle


last weekend

feels so far away

helping a company

move between buildings

my job was to ensure

packets flowed appropriately

now that it’s all over

life drifts back to normal

i’m not just coming home

and hitting the mattress

so i could be up in time to continue

the next day

and i’m not sure

if it’s good to say

that i enjoyed the experience

of throwing everything to one side

in order to concentrate

on the task at hand

because after it’s over

the emptiness sets in

i miss my walks

and the freedom

of taking it slow

one morning

just because I feel like it

this work ethic

is an albatross

it’ll be the end of me.
