Here’s a twofer Tuesday. Prompts numbers 2 & 3. Good luck!
This is a red letter day
like your first standing piss
or learning to drive a stick shift.
Not quite as red letter as those
but worth mentioning nonetheless.
I wade into the warm pond of day
feel the moments rise on my skin
as deeper and deeper I go,
the soft mud of wasted seconds
rising between my toes
and over the top of my feet.
