One Of Those Days

one of those days

One of those days
where connections
hang loose and
intentions fly shy


a nothing much 
sort of day

If the measure
of a man were lists
of accomplishments
bold-faced


there’d be nothing 
much to gauge

But endeavour
distressed exhausts
energy such he rests
in singularity’s shade


too much ado 
about nothing
