A Very Good Day

Today is going to be a good day

She thought gazing out at the dazzling azure sky

Today will be a good day

As she set about her chores

Today IS a good day

She said aloud as she walked her mile

today is a good day…today is a good day

she whispered, her body jumping as the back door slammed

today is a good day…today is a good day…today is a good day

Her heart pounding as heavy footfalls approached

Today was supposed to be a good day

She berated her bruised reflection in the mirror

Today is over

She sighed staring out at the dark night

Tomorrow-tomorrow will be better

She deceived herself

Recalling the prospect of what should have been

A very good day
