altogether concerned

after putting down the shovel and
letting an ice cold drink get poured
take the whole day to calculate
only one phrase needed to bring things together
getting the sun on skin for a few minutes
even if i had work gloves i wouldn’t wear them
torn between al the things that need to get done
half of them outside and the other half inside
empty the soil then
return to exactly right here
can you come here and just talk or a second
or would it be better if that doesn’t happen
not feeling like i should ever speak again and
can not think of a reason to ruin this moments silence
equally tired and hungry by now
red tints are starting at the edge of the clouds
new light reveals the same old mistakes
ending up filthy hands and sore feet
do enjoy exhausting tired end of day
