Blue Sky

RDP SATURDAY: AWAKEN

The last day I remember being able to see the blue sky and the last time I remember breathing fresh air was just after Labor Day.

After that the fires came and the power went off and the smoke was here.

It felt like it had always been here.

But on Friday it rained and this morning I saw this little patch of blue sky.

I was pretty excited about that.

The funny thing is that now it seems like the that rolled around on the ground and filled the tree tops and covered the sky was a million years ago.

I don’t know if that’s a good thing. It doesn’t do any good to pretend things are peachy keen when they are not.

But sometimes I think we need a little break  from those smokey dark days that roll into our lives through no fault of our own.

Maybe that’s what I got this morning, I caught a break- the sky was blue and I felt peachy keen.

Wait Up Now

RDP Friday – Again

The same numbers on the clock

the very same dates on the calendar

the same train to work

the same slack faces staring down at their phones

the same steps up to the street, grimy and slick with gum and coffee and pee

shampoo, rinse, repeat.

 

Repeat, repeat, repeat!

Wait, hold up now because

It’s Friday

again

and no matter how bleak it has been

all week

Friday

when it shows up

as usual

is

pretty  darn sweet.
