horace nods #4

while we spent new year's day cleaning
the house spic and spanning each room
the dust we moved from bookshelf to rag
to garbage bag to garbage can
might be the same dirt from last week
and tho the gods gave us another year
for scheduled chaos and patterns and verse
let us admit it doesn't get any better
than sharing another ordinary day
so now that the day's work is over
i'll decant the wine and we'll celebrate
the new year until it blurs happily
in our thoughts a toast to life
and one more ordinary day
