Work to Live, Live to Work

WORK TO LIVE,
LIVE TO WORK

(May 1, Labor Day)

may one
labor when labor
is bore?

may one
work when work
is yoke?

may one
toil when toil
is toll?

may one
see labor as
occupation or vocation?

may one
say work is
oppression or profession?

yet, i perceive:

labor
is sovereignty from cruelty of poverty;
work
is liberty from autocracy of deficiency.

– employment
is between
deficient and sufficient.
