Some days excite;
possibilities of life,
expectation of travel,
affirmation that something
said or written is
worth listening to and being read
appreciated and enjoyed;
Exciting as cake, fresh berries and chocolate sauce.
Why not? Wheat and dairy = no-no’s.
Just this once?
Sugar and chocolate buzz fuel the
2 a.m. forty-five mile trip home,
3 a.m. stomach distress
9 a.m. headache pushes though sleep.
Still, sugar hangover and food sensitivities
pale in comparison to the memory of
the night’s fun and anticipation.
Remember when the rush was the thing?
Now the thing’s the thing,
The promise of hope of the
Tomorrow faith sees.
