Sometimes Night Owls & Early Birds show up on the same shift. Not everyone, after all, works the standard 9-to-5 weekday.
Police, firefighters, hospital nurses and doctors, paramedics, retailers and restaurant staff, truckers, airline personnel, railroad crews, actors and musicians – the list continues.
As I newspaper editor working nights and weekends, I could spot them all, even when they seemed to be playing hooky in midday.
These poems arise in that awareness.
