days slipping  
one into another
sell the farm
go on the road 
just you and the cat

    I like this, the clarity and spareness, the move from context to possible action.

    . . .days slipping . . .
    They so compel us to activity we might,
    at another time have dismissed as unnecessary.
    Your well chosen words let us add what you did not have to write.
