August 29, 2020, Alexandria, LA-
The good of the whole
calls for the topsy turvy
to take hold.
So, a day of rest was prescribed
for yours truly,
both before and after
an overnight shift.
I sense the calm before the storm.
The day let me wash and dry clothes,
see a bit of the Red River’s banks,
and enjoy Mexican food, Louisiana-style.
It’s actually a pretty good fit, “LaMex”.
The night, as it happened,
was peaceful and went very, very slowly.
I was thus also prescribed whatever
sleep I needed.
The calm before the storm, indeed.
