It helps, on a Monday morning August 6, 2007

It helps, on a Monday morning, to clear the head

and start anew with coffee and pleasure.

It’s good to see light increasing and get out of bed

if it’s good to seek the treasure.

And the booty isn’t in the trinkets and money

so easy for the idealist and failure to say,

it’s not in proverbial milk and honey,

it’s not in the hell that we all must pay.

Knowing much helps but talking is better

with someone trusted and secure.

The tone comes across in the letter,

the vision in the theater of the ear.

It helps, on a Monday morning, to clear the nose

and start anew with bacon and pastry.

It’s good to see dark decreasing but suppose

its usefulness is borne in its mastery.

No theory supplants the feats of action

and the checkbook reveals all that needs knowing.

No formula explains human passion

but poor soil can stop the seed from growing.

It helps, on a Monday morning, to clear the head

and start anew with coffee and pleasure.

It’s good to see light increasing, get out of bed

if it’s good to contemplate leisure.
