Friday Poem

Via NoUtopia:

Betty Lockwood

Okay, woman,
Screenhunter_05_nov_30_0723_2lying here grieving,
tasting tears;
blow your nose;
get out of bed.
Resume yourself.
Pattern the day.

Remember with love.
Dance jigs of joy
in your versatile
Sing love songs,
even if off-key.

Memorize living.
Morning pills,

3 with a glass of water.

Vision new scenes.
Rehearse laughing.
The curtain stays up.
You’re still on stage.
