Work (Part 3)

the window shakes
the computer hums
then a plane drowns
all sound

greenish water
in the bathtub

smell of thyme

work, working
at the keyboard
working the keys
tapping the words
a whole week
weekend working

a car
pulls up
in the drive

red chimney pots
against a blue sky

a jackdaw clambers
out like solid smoke

the doorbell rings

keep typing
keying the words
as if my very life
depended on it

(which it does)
