Day 138 – defender yields for the day

Day 138
5:20 pm – 5:37 pm

defender yields for the day

wrested
like
too comfortable
between clean sheets
at seven in the morning
for the alarm
to ring

she wishes
to celebrate
today
by remaining
asleep

fie for the world
calling upon her
yet again
to court
others battles

but she wields
herself,
sleepy-eyed,
to break
for more than
triumph and scuffle
at the point
before the corner
just beyond
what she
is assigned to defend

so she concurs
she shall return
soon enough to the
midway
of her journey

smiling as she
welcomes
in
the
surreptitiously
lovely within
all that feels bleak
