ONE MORE GOOD DAY
(2/6/14)


I actually
woke up
this morning

I'm a
walking
talking human
once again

amazing

everything
seems
to be working
perfectly fine
as I go through
my routine

I know
that any minute
could be
my last

everything
changes

everything
changes
in one direction
only

toward
decay

toward
death

I think
about this
as I pick out
a shirt
to wear

I can choose
but
whether I last
long enough
to get my arms
through the sleeves
is still a roll
of the bones

I need
to start
thinking
about work
today

what I'll
do
when I get
home
tonight

even though
they are both
still only
probabilities
at this point

if I continue
to focus solely
upon the miracle
of now

I may
go completely
insane

never again
realizing
the miracle
of me
