Today

Today is a wonder on fire. 
It is a burning of every husk.
The leftovers of every success.
The hangover of every mistake.

Today is all sorrow and joy.
They are a family these.
They dance and mingle.
Tears with laughter.
Like salt and sugar.

Today is today is today.
Never before and never after.
Only now and just now. 
What a great relief that there is no responsibility.
For what we can’t hold in our little boney hands.
