Less than a Week

4 short cycles of the sun.

79 hours.
(78 hours and 20 mins to be more accurate)


Cue Alice Cooper*.

The children have been demons. They see the end is near.
They are out late at night playing in the midnight sun.
They are hunting and snow-go-ing and basket balling.

They do not want to be in the school house.
None of us do.

We are scratching at the walls.
Tearing to go places with pavement and people and beer.

Waiting for that very last bell. The bell that rings to a rousing cheer and signifies the end of yet another year.

Almost there…

*”School’s out”—great song from the 80’s, will be played on Friday**.

** Over and over and over and over again.
