Donnelly – Monday is Washday

Monday is Washday

You offered me
 an uneasy sleep-

an inconclusive finale.

Not bothering 
to wipe the stain

from my bed
from my heart.

Hiding icons-

behind the clock
on the mantelpiece.

Mile-upon-mile, yesterday
is a long time leaving.

Tick   tock   tick   tock!
