Today was rough and easy.
I sold nothing. I ran hard.
Today I felt my body. I wept to feel it more.
Today I informed and I educated.
I wore the red lipstick that he likes.
I was late and I wondered where
my admirer went. Percocet quieted him
quick. Today I questioned myself. I felt
bad about the past. I noticed my body held sadness.
Today I listened to my knees — one carried pain.
Today I slowed my body, I put peace first.
I walked a mile until it didn’t hurt.
I ran in darkness. I ran with glee.
The mosquitoes ate parts of me.
Today I saw my neighbor at the grocery.
Ponytail and black clothes, just like me.
Maybe I should write sketch comedy
I wondered if he cooks. Later I wondered if he
saw me wondering, wanting to be touched.
