The Next Day


image

Maybe it rolls in dark and ominous
Bringing batches of brooding baggage
Dragged behind digging damage in yesterday’s trip

The day after

When words were tossed out to unwilling catchers
Their mitt and mask left in the locker room
Not suspecting enemy play

image

The day after

Driving away from marble memories
Etched in cold stone heartbreak
Eyes fiercely ahead
No stopping into the tunneling tomorrow

image

The day after

Finally free
Let loose the gripping addiction
Standing silently still
A mind swept clear
Crossroads calling sweet footsteps

image

The day after

When wind whispers the answer
After today has turned her back
And wishing or hiding behind shuttered lids
Will not bring back foggy film of yesterday

image

So then
While woe and wings seem
To utter the fluttering self
In flight
This journey so made
Has yet but one desired destination
Into

The day after
