today, december 7th

i remember december 7th
came like a cold shower
wrapped in an old
towel, had me pacing
turning a radio dial
and wiping up spilt coffee.
life before 8 am;
life like this, get familiar.
a new name on the streets,
ignored, just another person.
now the machine barks,
her buzzer is buzzing,
and i am spread
just stretching it out
on the speckled floor,
a lamp lights this scene
though it is early day,
december 7th, anything can
happen.  i know this,
and wait for it, like getting
ready is an after thought,
and being unprepared
is exactly out of line.
the 7th day of december,
one in a gregorian sequence,
marked by boxes x-ed out
and a circle on a wall with arms.
i am here at this juncture,
watching, remembering,
taking notes, and testing the water.
