Without them, the only good thing about summer would be the weather   Leave a comment

The scent of minted toothpaste escapes into the hall


Signals guests are rising


A new day in the business of hospitality


Two Jamaican women in white walk side by side to work


The day slowly beginning


Anticipated breakfast prepared by gifted hands


A vacuum soon will break the silence after guests have made their way


The seasonal support of workers, loyal to their call


No sick days in this culture


Committed to their tasks


God knows they are writers, actors, artists, mothers, nurses


Dancing through a summer


Until the winter comes


To practice the dream their labor longs for


Becoming playwright, singer, artist


On a stage that winter will leave barren


For the gifted staff of summer 



Summer Staff
