Picture of the Day
December 18, 2018

i had a rather rich day today
and part of me is going to miss it

as i take a couple months off to travel
and study in the freezing ass midwest

i enjoyed buying lumber and fasteners
strapping them to the roof rack snug sir

tried to beat the rain fixing a gate but it came
anyway, had to scramble my stuff under cover

water is a miracle any way you slice it
     it spilled off tailgate and into gutter

time was i thought the job was an impediment
  —my main purpose was the next photograph

now it's all reversed and i've learned focus
just not with a camera but my other implements

so, sorry, i'm so sorry, nothing here but words:
measure, cut, and screw—mission accomplished
