From “The 26th of December,” by Galway Kinnell
Irregular life begins. Telephone calls,
Google searches, evasive letters,
complicated arrangements, faxes,
second thoughts, consultations,
e-mails, solemnly given kisses.
So (slowly) it does, on this most relaxed day of the year.
Enjoy. And don’t rush. Irregular life will still be there tomorrow.
