Monday Mullings

You imagined something different
you imagined something more
and this
couldn’t
wouldn’t
can’t
be the way it all turns out
with you just
rising
writhing
full of doubt
and yet you know you’ll
carry on,
that you’ll keep on
marching
driving
fighting
until your card is drawn


Wondering a bit about the word in that title? Well, ‘Webster’s (1879) defined mullings as “to work steadily without accomplishing much,” which may connect it to earlier identical word in athletics sense of “to botch, muff” (1862). Related: Mulled; mulling’.

There you have it, folks, I found the perfect word to go right along with Mondays. It even sounds good together. Would ya look at that?

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.
