Day Job
        For Denise, the science teacher...

Working
the night shift,
the plants and trees

all serve
as appreciative artisans
of moon sighs and star tears

but come morning,
they all return
to their day jobs,

effectively assuring
that light energy from the sun
is properly transformed

into chemical energy
via the production
of glucose molecules.

        Cristine A. Gruber
