UNDESERVED DAYS
(12/13/13)


I wake
up

I am
able
to stand

I am
able
to walk
down
the hall

hold
my own dick
while I
pee

shave
shower
and clothe
myself

drive
my car
to a business
that entrusts me
with a key

open
the door

turn on
the lights

sit at
my desk
and power up
a computer

connect
with people
worldwide
to ply
my trade

get paid
for what
I enjoy
doing

drive
home
at the end
of the day

greet
my wife

exercise
eat
entertain
ourselves

brush
my teeth

crawl
into a warm
bed
where
I am able
to reflect
upon this chain
of minor miracles
for which
the dead
would trade
all
of their previous
existences

I am blessed
with the banality
of it all

I am
alive
