The Very Long Poem Sequence About the Summer of 2006 Carries On Today on Poetry Thursday

August 15, 2006
This morning

for the first time in
I don’t know how long
maybe ever
I was the first person in our part of the office

I’m usually among the first
but there’s always one or two people
often though not always the same people
there before me

But today
it was dark
and silent
with very clearly no one else around

I can’t even begin
to tell you
how deeply
I enjoyed this

I had some moody music on my headphones
and it was foggy out making it dim and gray inside
and there was just something so enjoyably peaceful
about the shadowy early-morning quite office
