Day 3,042

This fat day,
with its bare branches, precedes no more

ashes for me.
Wipe foreheads, clocks, songs, stairs, smoke
stands, seeds, souls

down. Just for today. Tomorrow I still may
go lean.

  1. Haha, funny!

    Have you REALLY been blogging 3042 days? That’s astonishing!

    You should put together a best-of category…from your point of view. Some of us would love it!

    I think you’re a fabulous writer.


    • Oh, no. I’ve only been blogging for about a year and a half (540 or so posts). Day 3,042 refers to the number of “day poems” I’ve written. I started writing a poem a day 8 1/2 years ago when I stopped drinking. I like counting things.
