day 45: trying to catch up

Today I spent the day with my daddy.

I thought I would catch up on everything that has happened. But the day has run out yet again. Tomorrow, perhaps, will be the day.

Tomorrow

by David Budbill

Tomorrow
we are
bones and ash,
the roots of weeds
poking through
our skulls.

Today,
simple clothes,
empty mind,
full stomach,
alive, aware,
right here,
right now.

Drunk on music,
who needs wine?

Come on,
Sweetheart,
let’s go dancing
while we still
have feet.
