The Workman

He spent the morning preparing; a careful shower, thoughtful shave followed by a light application of aftershave to prevent bruising, powder applied gently, softly. His clothes laid out meticulous, the thick woolen multicolored heavy shirt and even brighter the jacket, his jeans those of a laborer, long bright red woolen socks still smelling of fabric softener,
His routine in his mind; the falling trees and rolling logs can kill a lumberjack. His bright colors would enable others to see him in the underbrush of the worlds dangers, proud to stand out approved, his every move rehearsed and thoughtful.
