tomorrow

this woman is named
Tomorrow
and tomorrow she and he will buy yarn
and tomorrow
they will go to the grocery store
and tomorrow
they will talk of incidental things

tomorrow
he will travel but will call home
because he know she will be there

and tomorrow
she says it is time
and tomorrow the bed will come
and tomorrow will be the last day she walks
tomorrow is the last day she smiles at him and speaks

this woman named
Tomorrow
today does not open her eyes
and today stops her breathing

she is Today
and today he is alone.

    All of these are so powerful, Sen. I am left quite speechless.

    I’m sorry you’ve had a bad week. The writing helps?
