(May 8, 2008)

Shirt rumpled, sleeves rolled up,
Deadline looming, wheels turning
Pausing only to put thought into words
Furrowed brow, mussed hair,
Tie loosened, open shirt collar
Lean back in the chair,
It’s after hours

Papers scattered, thoughts focused
Intense, adrenaline-fired exhaustion
Lights dimmed,
Features bathed in monitor glow,
Intelligence, inspiration in overdrive, overtime
Inspired by Ira Glass and “This American Life Live” as seen at Kerasotes Showplace 16 in Rockford, IL.  In Dec. 2008, I saw him live in Springfield.  And yes, I'm a giant dork, but you probably already knew that.
