A HUNDRED DOLLARS
(4/3/19)


we didn't
make much
money
today

certainly
not enough
to pay
the daily
bills

but
we made
something

that's
something
I guess

embarrassing

but at least
the machine
isn't completely
broken

some
reassessments
are definitely
needed

no doubt

in
some ways
$100
is almost worst
than making
nothing
at all

the panic
of zero
would at least
impart
a sense
of urgency

just
a little
income
however
makes us
simply hope
that tomorrow
will be
a better
day

it may
very well
be

if the
lights
are still
on
