Morrow

I was fired from my job today.

Morrow 4/27

I open up the drapes
take a deep breath of the cool air
and blow the dust off this year

Green vines wrap slowly up the walls
of the apartment behind my apartment
small purple flowers blink like stars

The red brick glows beneath
the vines a woman opens a window
and a few birds fly off

I want to take everything down
clean it until it is different
but the blinking continues

It is so perfect and simple
everything is held up against the world
