Mary’s Birthday

Morning of Mary’s birthday

though in another time zone

she is surely asleep.

Here in Central Daylight Time

her birthday arrives two hours

earlier and I wander the house

singing the Happy Birthday song

again and again to the air

waiting waiting for whenever

she might be ready to hear it.

I wish her a prime year better

than the one before and the next

one better than this my slightly

unrealistic wish for me and mine.
