I slept in later than usual
holding my baby longer than the usual 
morning appointment on this workday
on the way...

we are human pretzels
tangled like warm dough pups 
In a down blanket oven
in our den, surrounded by the cold

The day begins
I soak in man made rain
cleaning the bakery dust
Drying off the wooden tools
I hang myself to dry 

Off to the dentist
insurance questions
Why do I pay so much a month
for the privilege 
to pay even more at each visit

I've come to believe
My premiums are just
Membership dues like a 
Human box store, Costco DDS

Then off to work with shiny 
clean chicklets
On the radio the congress listens 
to some guy spew bullshit

I go to building C
like a cattle call 
to pick up my prescription
It's hard to describe what you see 
when you can't give a description

Show up for work 
and talk about things
explain things
decide things
shut down things
reassure people
solve things
complete things
kick off things
and start things
sell things, win things, lose things
describe things
prescribe and suggest things
go to the white board and draw, draw things
spell out things...solve things
reassure people
complete things
talk about things decide things kickoff things 
and start things and win things and lose things 
and sell things try things things describe things suggest things spell out things
 things and things...things

Packed up my lunch and laptop
and leave to drive straight home 
to the bedroom bakery 
where me and my baby
Can be alone
knead and twist and bake ourselves
into soft warm pretzels again
