GRAVEYARD SHIFT


GRAVEYARD SHIFT

Remembering my third shift,

Overnight when the mind tends to drift…

While walking around

Hearing building sounds,

Recording my notes so they’re “cliffed.”**

To overnight sit in one place

Invites one to drift into space…

Regular walking tours

Helps one to endure

And keep a bright look on your face.

But ah, the joy driving back

Home, when dawn has cracked…

Seeing details come to light

After a long job done right,

Finally on a bed-bound track!

—Jonathan Caswell

(**NOTE:  “cliffed” = short and concise, like Cliff Notes for school)
