there’s always another one
waiting patiently in line
(it seems to stretch on and on like elastic
wrapped ’round the moon
until tomorrow doesn’t come
and you’re left alone
a frayed ribbon blowing in a listless breeze
the words unsaid hanging heavy
in your lungs)
a tomorrow is useless
unless it drips between your fingers
unless you lose it in today
because todays are dangerous
and tomorrows
are nevers in disguise
