labor – wayne f burke

first time in years
no labor for me
on Labor Day
I am free of the
factory and
looking forward to collecting
social security checks
unless they are
kept or
canceled by the
scambouli in Washington
then I will go back
to work:
running a cash register at the
supermarket or
sweeping up over by the
cigarette machine, I do not know
what or
where
or care much
today, because
today I am working
on my tan.
