Oh

wednesday

you are the lump in my throat

my week-ness

nestling so comfortably

glowing, gloating

famed but feckless

fiddling between my thens and nows

cutting my life into uneven sections

of reveries and regrets

oh wednesday,

who gave you the honour?

  5. I so love the weekness and the way you used alliteration in the lines:

    glowing, gloating
    famed but feckless
    fiddling between my thens and nows

    I liked the fact that the word hump never appeared in the poem; a terrific spin of and tribute to
    Wednesdays.
