March 31

On Odin’s day last week, I took a break.
Preceding days required I exert
a bit too much, and coming stints would take
the energy and patience I maintain
for when the peace of family’s at stake.
Before the 1st of April I reclined.
My only self assignments were to make
a salad and this stanza, and divert
myself in Wednesday wisdom when awake.
