days are never important
in advance–
but this one, the day after
the apocalypse that didn’t

carries more weight
than the snow I woke to

the world is still here
and so are most of us
but not all
that woke yesterday

make what you can of what you have left


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Perhaps the world ends on a different day for each of us. I’m pretty sure that works.
