black as day


Today is the nicest day of the year
so far as I can see from my window
the curtains have been pulled aside
but the light does not shine over me
a dark cloud hovers like penance to be paid
casting a one man thunderstorm
to disguise my tears in a brackish mix

I took a moment to run an errand
and felt the warmth of the sun’s kisses
but my heart is not on my sleeve
though it matches in color
fading into the recesses of the cesspool
perhaps someone will be brave enough
to reach into the muck to find it
and bring it somewhere to dry
placed near the flowers on a day like today
