Wait, I say

...

restless.

but shouldn't we be
licking our lips?

the holidays are ahead.

this?
a watch in the night.
the cover
and title page.

but what a cover.

teach us to
number
our
days

to remember

the
Something Good.

what is the morning
without
the sunrise?

Thanks, Erin. It's been forever since I've written anything. And this poem is me at the moment-- a great possibility looming for the winter, making me want to make the most of my time here and now ... and realizing that, shouldn't I live this way all the time?
