Cycles : For CJM

A week turns

into a month turns

Into memories coming back

When the commercials remind you

1991

And yet

The cycles of the seasons

Make the calendar a talisman —

The most hopeful day

Is December twenty-second.

The second shortest day

But the first in months

Longer than the last

That reminder

That things get better

If only a little every day.
