Standing the Heat With Torture

It’s not the bright day I recommend
        but the grey day I’d like to extend
        with few tasks to finish
        going outside to diminish
        the fears and burdens that ask
        for yet another unfulfilled task —

After those sweaty days in recent weeks
        there are left with me some rosy cheeks
        because I took my chance of a freer life
        to use my mind for a creative drive —

Today it’s grey; I don’t torture my brain
        but within days I’ll possibly do it again.
