A New Day

By Eric Greinke

Originally published in Main Street Rag


Wake up, light up
Turn on the tube
To check the news

But we really care
About the weather
& wonder how long

Indian summer will last
Or whether it might rain
Because we all love

A sunny day
When everything seems possible
In those marginal moments
Before the airing of the initial grievances
