Enter Stage Left

 

Every New Years Eve

I promise to

be myself.

I don’t promise to not get fatter or to organize my closets

or to be more patient, loving and understanding.

 

Every New Years Eve

when the fireworks go off and people hug their friends

and smooch their lovers

I promise to be myself

but how can I promise to be

something I’ve never been?
