I tried to recall what it was like when I was working at my government job.

Sarah is today’s host for dVerse. Sarah says:
I want you to choose a day, and think about the features of that day. What’s your typical Monday? What does Friday mean to you? Is your day of rest a Saturday, or a Sunday, or a Tuesday? Then write me a poem about the way that day feels to you.
