Your Lesson for This Morning

January 20, 2012 in Poems

Study the lifelines of a leaf
Measure them against those of your palm
Subtract the lovers and friends you have forgotten
Add the kindnesses you have given today
Divide by the Saturdays you have left
Go to the nearest tattoo parlor
Have the number inked on to your pinky finger
Chop it off and start again
