Kicking back my heels

Kicking back my heels

Today’s stars say
that I should do nothing
that I should relax
that I’ve been working
too hard and that I need
to take a break
to chill out
let time off the leash
and hang loose
not get worked up
about a single thing

today’s stars say
that I’m at risk
of burnout
that I’ve been pushing
myself too hard
taking life too seriously
working my fingers
to the bone
and that I need
to learn a little
Latin mañana
so I will
