I’ve Been Recalling

Suddenly I’m remembering the days when I worked second shift at this catholic high school. I would go in at 2, just in time to see the pretty girls in their happy little uniforms dance out of the building, their boyfriends laughing at me for being a 19 year old janitor. I’d get out of work in the late night and live my free waking hours until the world turned its face back to the sun, and as morning crept up over the Allegheny mountains as seen from Colver, PA, I’d find my couch and the sleep it promised to provide.

What a strange life it was to be awake all night and sleep all through the day.
