Default A Land In The Desert.


A land in the desert,
And by the deadline—
I’ll have made a struggle
Seem effortless.
A voice came up calling—
If all the broken dirt
Was worth the uptaking!
Pace by outpacing—
We cross’d
The epic Finish Lines!
The throes have no constraints
When we set off--
The west still sets on us,
A dash of no return—
Another form of trust—
To reserve us, to find us,
Nay! To please us endlessly
In Jove's untimely absolution.

Readers respond to stuff from where they relate to it (true, some query author for intent - what's up with that?).

This piece seems to me to be about the effort to wrap up the week's work so the weekend can be enjoyed.
