Yves Saint Laurent Suede Tribute Sandals For the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back in your office thinking about life, changing careers, and Prufrock.

I have known them all already, known them all:
The commuter’s evenings, mornings, afternoons.
My car, coffee cups throughout are strewn
Papers ones from the Starbucks by the mall.
Now, beneath the dash there is no room
So, I should get a broom.

And I have known the mornings steady, known them all:
Mornings that break early, bright and fair.
[But, in the afternoon, clogged with smoggy air!]
Is it the floorboard mess
That makes me so digress?
Mornings that lie along the road, or languish while the traffic crawls.
And should I send my resumé?
And what should my cover letter say?

Shall I say, I have gone back to school for my poetry MFA?
And watched the student loans defaulting,
With lonely writers in shirt-sleeves, working as barristas?…

I should never have been an actuary,
Scuttling across the spreadsheets of silent seas.

“I am Yves Saint Laurent, come from the dead,
Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all”

    Those shoes would work for peach eating or for universe disturbing. Versatile indeed.

    I say, ditch the Eliot, listen to some Copland and have faith in the the season and the prettiness of the shoes!!

    Ah, maestro. Bravo.

    Do you wear your trousers rolled? If so, please give some thought to the day’s choice of socks.
