Another day, Another week

I wake, It’s Friday.
Rubbing my eyes,
I rise, I turn.

On the shelf, same place,
the big red marker pen,
dashing, darting
‘SWOOSH’ it’s in my hand,
heading for the door,
“Morning dog.”

It’s there, on the mat,
staring, laying in a twisted heap,
my mangled pile of hope.
‘SNATCH,’ pushing the pages together,
dashing to the kitchen table,
flicking, searching.

They’re there,
the job listings gleaming,
shining, speaking to me.
‘POP,’ the lid,
the acrid, sweet, scent,
rising to my nose.

The marker grasped,
I scan, I flick,
Searching,
Wanting,
Willing……

Nothing.
I slump,
Jobless,
Dejected.

‘CLICK,’ the lid,
Snapped in place,
again,
back to the shelf, same spot,
another day,
another week.

Another day, Another week
