secular Lent

Harvey S. Mozolak

no time to pause
means that we have gathered
all the pauses
bound them with busyness
and used them as whip
against our hours
to hurry away from home
and when the circuit
returns at darkness to something
under a roof’s shelter
we are too tired to retire
and occupied devouring our silence
with completing completions
