Poetic Asides #15

Theme: Deadlines

Due date

Google calendar rings with them

for grants, for fellowships, for self-employment taxes-

the necessities of a writer’s life

or at least one that’s less austere.

Often, they harness wayward muse to task forgotten,

revive sprit in effort to meet request

by dictatorial forces, perhaps unknown.

Sometime grateful,

sometimes hated

mostly worth it!
