Let Me Have Today

November 23, 2018

Heavy as the dampened Earth that lies beside the rushing creek
    that dragged us in its trudging tide
        foreshadowing the passing weeks
Thrown around like dolls in play, limping limbed and messy haired
    clothed in old and tattered threads
        hollowed out by wear and tear
Stillness from the breaking dawn that settled into sleeping bones
    began to stir in whistling winds
        that howled down the dusty roads
Fading ink that stained the page with blackness like the dead of night
    suggested language barriers
        in setting the scene just right

The plans all fell by wayside woes
    like disintegrating aged photos
        with ways that parted like the seas
            and lives that passed as though a breeze
If I were to kneel and pray
    the only thing there’d be to say
        to anything beyond the ray, is:
            Please, just let me have today

            Please, just let me have today

In my memory there’s photographs

Existing in the space between two destinations,
like a layover in an airport terminal,
untethered from the surrounding chaos.
Moving parts coalesce in...
