Couldn't get up on time
couldn't get out on time
and spilled coffee (day-old latte)
on my crotch
(& sweatshirt jacket headphones pants-in-general).
Drove the wrong way on autopilot,
(cursing cursing cursing)
and then again during the corrective measure
(illegal u-turn wrong way down one-way street necessitated)
(but justified because I didn't hit anyone).
Then when I finally arrived;
Zero spots in four lots.
So I gave up.
Every once in a while,
everyone is allowed to give up.
We are allowed to take our misfortunes with good humor
and decline to take them seriously.
We are allowed to forgive ourselves
going to a cafe
and sitting in the sun.
