today and next tuesday


by an usual genetic quirk   i 

retain memories

of tuesdays   every tuesday of my


life comes to me without conscious

thought or effort   tuesday

at lisa's house when i was seven   tuesday


swimming to a raft on clear lake   the

tuesday i chipped a tooth   no

tuesday escapes me   at the same time   i have


no power of prediction   what today or next

tuesday may bring   i can only

imagine   so i do   i imagine today and next tuesday   and


because i am hopelessly romantic   have no resistance to it   no

desire to resist   i imagine only the pure love of one
