A Day Like Any Other

This day like every other

presents itself without guile

arms wide with full permission

for whatever any one chooses

(small or large)

and isn’t that marvelous?

A window through which any one

might look, lean or climb

depending upon their predilection

each to her own intention

every choice as splendid

as every other.

Cheer or Gloom?

This day opens its two arms to reveal

a plump breast upon which to rest

or a gentle push in the direction

of my choice–cheer or gloom.

My choice.  Which shall I take?

Well, the obvious is simple enough

so whyever, for God’s sake, do we

ever ever do the other?

Clearly the answer is only

because we are dumb.
