12 Months, One Day

“If you were able to relive one day during the last 12 months, which day would it be — and why?”

With the last twelve months evading my mind, 

I searched my calendar hoping to find…

What I found 

Not profound

In the past year without a doubt

One single day does not stand out

In November and December 

Holidays—that’s all I remember

January and February came next

A standard dreaded winter in the Midwest

I hate winter you’ve been told

All I remember is that I was cold

April the month there’s a change in my age

Birthdays are cruel for me at this stage

A year closer to death—although

There is cake involved…still it’s no

In May I blew out my appendix 

Laid around unemployed and watched Netflix

In exchange for my next work reprieve 

I must give up my gallbladder I believe

June, July and August for my employment

I traveled to Europe and found some enjoyment

I saw the place Ann Boleyn lost her head, 

Where the lost princes vanished from their bed

The Tower of London, great Kings effects

I spoke with a fake British dialect

I went to Paris and you’d be correct  

J’ai mange’ un croissant et une baguette

A great trip to New York wound up my summer

But then it was fall, which was a big bummer 

From September through today

Not one day would I replay

Except perhaps I would duplicate 

A day off in which I could sleep late

  1. What!? I loved this so much. I am not very good at writing poems. I can’t ever make them flow. And they are never interesting. Yours was both, my friend. Well done!
    P.S. Sorry about your appendix :/
