poem of the day 09.26.13

a million dollars

there are those moments of departure

leaving a city
leaving a bad and failed lover
leaving a job for the day

or hopefully for good

where the person in the moment
although confused and perhaps frightened
of the future

becomes so uplifted at the turn of events
that it feels like an awakening

a resurrection of the mind

and though they may be both broke
spiritually and physically at the moment

there are still some whom are able
to saunter down the street

giving the illusion of being
as hard as stainless steel

as confident as tent preacher

or as carefree as someone
suddenly worth

a million dollars.
