"Monday Morning True Triangulation," A New American Sonnet . . . to All the Friends I Can't Forget
A New American Sonnet
To All the Friends I Can't Forget
Somewhere in the terrible but true triangle
binding Lasting-Love with brother Weekend-Worry
and with is cousin Caring-Curiosity,
Monday tantalizes my imagination
when the morning finds me without information
how ex-trav-a-gan-ces of ag-glu-ti-na-tion
and relentless forces seeking consummation
found coherence in their weekend germination,
leading you and yours to further consternation,
or to new resolves of happy affirmation
buttressing foundations for new liberation
worthy of a calibrated celebration.
Hearing from you any way on any day . . . would stim-u-late me,
but on Monday morning come my way and stay . . . to caf-fein-ate me!
