Grey Mondays (a poem)

Cool and cloudy this Monday morning…

No standing here
all too clear
neither refusal nor fear
not here

Vignettes alone
pictures on a phone
here in the ‘friend zone’
alone

Conditional risks
justifiable picks
dinner at six
without risks

Grey, grey Mondays
no time for play
with stumbling blocks in the way
Ah, Mondays!
