SOFT TRACK
(3/26/17)

some days
are easier
than others

the condition
seems independent
of all the common
markers

well fed

well rested

well fucked

doesn't always
guarantee
a good day

sometimes
we feel great
for no
apparent reason

thoughts
are clear

pain
diminished

the steps
seem easy

light

we hazard
a run

just because
we still can

we smile

we laugh
like idiots

hoping
that no one
sees us

knowing
that tomorrow
may rob us
of such mirth

not caring
today

God
does not keep
calendars

grace is dispensed
willy nilly

we only need
to recognize

to enjoy

when the
sun shines
upon us

cloudy day
or not
