10 days without pay

cleveland morning soaked in grey
late again
one way to the time clock
bob dylan
dulcet lay
slow lady lay
cleveland future soaked in grey
but no commercials
no corporations
at wjcu the heights
where 372 non faculty staff will choose
which ten days without work
without pay

i like the girl DJs the best
with their recorder clear note voices
their charming insecurity
or their flitty commentary secure
in the firm unquestioned structure
of the middle class

i love these girls
and that world
that has long
been gone
for me
