“The Weekend Mystique”

“The Weekend Mystique”

The weekend mystique, the rush’s rash in weekend treks
From Victoria Square to Rigaud, and then of course the sack–a nap
Or two will do to cast the bones, sift the spirits, pump the sap
From toes to heady regions of the lobes and neck
And coax that Ka from out the closet, the familiar that brought
The body from the cemetery to the métro once again–
Refreshment redux; reinvented–and then
The taxing and taxes, the proper pressures as they ought
To be addressed with reverence, aplomb, with nothing more or less
Than fumes and just a touch of lead; another zygote, another test,
A sudden hush in fast forward. As it were, what one would guess
Should gross at least as many pixels from the guest
Appearance at the office as in the kitchen round the pot; the chat room’s histories
Blush as fingers dance across the laptop revealing candid mysteries.
