Very Early on the First Day of the Week

Lately I’ve found my heart quite otherwise.
Its sorta tricky to say exactly what that means but
I would be tickled to overhear a couple of friends
gossiping about me, one of them finally
oh, you know John, his heart’s quite otherwise.
My birthday’s rising soon and I’ve asked for
a subscription to The Denver Post, Sunday edition.
There’s something reassuring to me in the thought
of a carrier pitching a wrap of news in my roses
one day a week, a paper disciple gunning toward
Galilee shuddering and wild.
