Labor Day



took me a while

to understand jobs we happen to have

plumber poet home care worker

how we earn our living circumstances of life

our grandmother’s name shape of our apartment

books that were or weren’t in a library near our house

who we are and what we do aren’t the same and we

who work all of us who work

we have to work to live we have to work

to pay for our lives that all of us who work

no matter what the job we do

we are all really and truly workers.
