The Wife of a Nightshifter

Peaceful morning time.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Time passes slowly.

Ignore the clutter.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Quiet by fireside.

Routine, the enemy.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Routine is the friend.

Weekends are one way.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Weekdays, another.

When are you working?
The wife of a nightshifter.
What days are you off?

Need a housekeeper.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Busy dayshifter.

Who cares about clutter?
The wife of a nightshifter.
No one comes over.

Who cares about doghair?
The wife of a nightshifter.
No visitors come.

Five PM wakeup.
The wife of a nightshifter.
My day is ending.

Somehow it works.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Someday it won’t.

Dinner for breakfast.
The wife of a nightshifter.
Breakfast for dinner.
