the devil and steely dan’l

the work begins

when you first open your eyes in the morning.

and until day’s end

every task among the myriad

is somehow configured to serve a final goal.

but you keep at it

even when there’s little to show for all the grinding, squeezing,

and planning.

all the while patiently waiting for that moment when some obstruction 

becomes dislodged.

sometimes it’s easy.
