exhausted before vacation

the problem with work is
it interferes with play
with planning
and cooking, hiking and shopping,
from doing anything else but
exhausted before vacation,
too exhausted to think of vacation,
to plan for vacation, to look forward to
that is the problem with work,
it interferes with life, the life my
brother is having taking off anytime to
ride a bike, drive a car, take a boat,
hike a trail, have a lunchtime BBQ,
and work,
well, it inteferes with a well thought out
poem, a well played flute sonata, a beautiful
garden, coffee at noon, reading in bed,
doing nothing.
work interferes with too much life.
