Enjoying the end of Summer

The weather has been,


a glorious August.

I have finally started looking,

for a job,

I had hoped to look,

in bookshops and libraries,


there isn’t much,

available and what there is,

pays peanuts,

I’m a little sick,

of being poor.

I have no great wealth,



being able to have a little extra,

after expenses,

doesn’t seem too, too,



I have therefore applied,

and will continue,

to apply for part time,

customer service jobs,

the banks always have work,

the pay is good,


the stress is less than,

in telecommunications,

I think


So, soon,

my lazy Summer will be over,


I will once again be gainfully,


I’ve written quite a bit,

notes, sketches, fleshing out.

That’s also why,

I want to work,

twenty five, thirty hours a week,

to have time,



for the creative.

My reading has been sketchy,

parts of books,

not finishing much,


I’ll talk about all that soon.

Be well,

enjoy the end of the Summer.

Later girls,
