So Yesterday

so yesterday       what did i do       i wrote an amend
i had lunch with maugham at not your average joe's
i drank five cups of cafe listo salvadoran instant

what else       i chatted with john who's helping me
with stuff       i ate soft tortillas with peanut butter
i prayed the glorious mysteries of the most holy rosary

i re-read dylan thomas's poem on his birthday
this sandgrain day in the bent bay's grave
and fern hill       and lament       and in country heaven

i recorded a henri nouwen prayer for youtube
i got an ancient turquoise rosary in the mail
i thanked heaven for a respite from the humidity

i rejoiced that we've started the last full month of summer

though september can be hot and difficult
