Today is a day for clothespegs
and shawls and gin in a teacup;
it's a day for not unpacking,
for leaving paperclips unused
except for elaborate new desk sports.
Today is a day for learning jacks
or Mahjong or 3 Card Brag;
it's a day for ordering pizza
then drawing a ouija board
in sharpie on the back of the box
and asking: 'Is anybody there?'
knowing there isn't,
hoping, of course,
for John Lennon,
or Tosh from The Bill.
