Running

Running

I ran into my day today

Out of bed on two feet and down the steps to sugary cereal and hours of tv cartoons

I ran into my day today

Quickly to bus stop grabbing at my things and hoping it was all there

I ran into my day today

Across the room to silence the offending alarm after a long long night of books and beer

I ran into my day today

Unwillingly pulled from a dream by my beautiful crying baby

I ran into my day today

Into a daily routine of loving and watching

coaxing urging praising feeding nagging supplying

I ran into my day today

And there was nothing there

I ran into my day today

One foot in front of the other watching the bricks and pavement go by

I ran into my day today
