365 Jobs: Overhaul

Adirondack Sketches: Friday, June 25, 1999


Being men, we can't just talk
so we eviscerate a
vacuum cleaner
as a social vehicle
while the radio
plays oldies,
our music.

We sort screws, test wires,
gathered around a table
with hand tools to
mend and maintain
a well-worn friendship,
aware that the Hoover
will never run.
