This Day, Her Day

Lying in his bed, staring at the ceiling he thought:

 

This Day-Her Day

Downtown-Airwaves

 

Real-life-Good Times

Alliteration-Great Minds

 

No Idea-In the Clear

Out of beer-Out of Here

 

Summer days-Winter Months

Bike to Work-Eat Lunch

 

Rake the Leaves-Sit Inside

Slap her Ass-Forget the Pride

 

Hungover-Sober Judge

No more Headaches-A lot more Love

 

Fun times-Fun times

 

Every Day-Hard Times

Semi-Pro-Novice Rhymes

 

No Insurance-No Church

Feeling Better-Feeling Worse

 

Most Days-Hardly Sit

Look Around-Take it In

 

He threw the blankets aside and rose from his bed to do it again…

Only to do it again.

But this time while looking in the mirror he said, “Hello my friend.”

 

Then I thought:

How much does your book weigh?

It’s heavier than my remote.

 

Then I experienced:

And J said, “You are so positive.”

I said, “If you aren’t positive, what can you be?”

J said, “Negative.”

And I said, “No, not me.”

 

Another day, another dollar, broke scholar.

Keep reading and writing.

So enlightening it’s frightening.
