by gosh

it seems a lot of us humans
get so philosophical
and sentimental
near the end
of each roman calendar year

those romans knew how
to prick you
didn't they

and of course
we've left another
year of devastation
& turmoil
behind us

so being reflective
isn't so bad
an idea

but still
if there's a way
to escape tomorrow's humdrum
surely someone
will package that
for the next
big box store

i'm trying
not to make light
of these deep deep
after all we really
go around
but once
don't we

so when the new calendar starts
i'll try & get things rounded out
in my own head
     no guarantees of course
