poem of the day 05.08.13

there’s always tomorrow

the trick to these mornings is to lay still
tell yourself, well, i just won’t drink today
i’ll dry out and then take it from there
and when the headache and stomach pains subside
say, okay, maybe i’ll do one on the couch with a book
two or three with the ballgame or the radio
but, if in the end, you end up sitting there
smiling like a fool, swilling one after the other
remember that there’s always tomorrow for self-improvement
at least until tomorrow falls by the wayside too.
