On the Fourth Day of the New Year

Work is the only way past it,
and work is the only thing for it.
Work alone can save you

from the pincer-pressure
of the end of your hiatus,
and the resumption of your exile.

Scruffy,reliable Work,
shape and content of Hope,
can save you.

Work, and also Love,
can save you,
for Love is - for Love must be -

inspiration for work
and end of work
if work be not in vain....

...if work be
but work.
