“Our Lives are Borrowed from Tomorrow”
Each day of sun,
rain, hair-raising wind,
pink blushes, joy,
is taken from another
day by day by day.
staving off the grave,
buying one more
until we’re spent,
our final debt paid.
My poetry collection, Soul Picked Clean, went into its second printing this week! If you would like your very own copy, you can buy one at one of my upcoming poetry events where I’ll be happy to sign it for you! Otherwise, you can directly from Crisis Chronicles or Amazon for $12.
