April 1. At work
Sitting on the edge of my seat.
Volume barely audible.
In a stuffy office
of buttoned-down collars
and billable hours.
I’m wound up — excited.
Attempting to concentrate on work
Knowing it’s impossible.
Don’t let the excitement be seen.
A friend emails, “Are you at work today
or at home in front of the TV?”
Another friend sent a “Happy Opening Day” card
converted from a birthday card
because Hallmark doesn’t make them. (Their mistake.)
A cousin sends a message
“Happy opening day!”
It’s nice to be understood.
