I have six-thousand four-hundred and twenty-two
steps today
which is more than I would have guessed
because I really didn’t do
you know those days
when you wake up
don’t have to go to work
or school
or jiu jitsu
or Romanian ballet class
and you convince yourself
today is your day
so you lay
in bed
on the couch
under the washing machine
in the fire place
letting the time slip through you.
