Sonnet 13

The short week I've been lain down here with you
Cavorting with my wicked quatorzains
Has done me good, the way a toy might do,
The sort of toy that stimulates one's brains.

So more fun here tomorrow, right? I aim
To wind my pleasures up ahead of time.
By now I know it's more than just a game,
Yet still will run my quota through in rhyme.

The sooner done, that soon I'm on my own.
This chore's been my assignment until then,
But when my last one's posted I'll have flown.

So let these words jump eager verb to noun
And let my blood be ink upon my pen.
By February, I'll be heading down.
