Next in the Continuing Poem Series About The Fall of 2005

October 14, 2005
Oh the whole day slipped away from me today

rushing around work
in an outfit involving
a turquoise slip
(one I’ve had since I was about thirteen)
hanging out of my pullover on purpose

Suffice it to say
it’s been a damn hard week
on the home front
and thereby hangs a tale

but nevertheless
I’m finding increased equilibrium
I hesitate to say that
and jinx it
but it’s true
I can fee it

Aided and abetted
by the separate smells
of brown sugar
and cinnamon
at breakfast
