11:30 AM - The Color of Tuesday

Beth Fritsch

The color of Tuesday is never brown
Its day-after-Monday,
Second-day-of-the-work-week,
Three-days-‘til-Friday’s position
won’t let it be.
No, the color of Tuesday is most surely yellow.
Young yet, I have seen it yield its very aspect
to a new task, some other urgency.
I am grateful for its malleability,
a virtue I wish I could wear as radiantly.
Instead I find myself
seldom satisfied
even bored by the needful necessity
of change, change, change.
And I wonder,
will I yellow with age then?
