Case of the Mondays

because it’s Monday
 the alarm sucks, kids are bored,
 and fall won’t happen–
 
 the classroom burns hot
 from a boiler turned on
 two weeks too early
 
 and everyone thinks
 it’s a holiday today,
 so here i sit. wait
 
 at the Jiffy Lube
 with the rest of the world
 panning for oil.
 
 this is white privilege.
 this is American life.
 black gold that burns all.
