one day, like any other.

i guess today
is the day of
roulette spins and
half-hearted wins;

a lifetime supply of
what
you don’t want,
anyway.

today is the day
of here’s what you
get, and you don’t
know it,

yet. so hang tight
to your number
and pray.

even if the plea
falls on an ear
it isn’t your fault,
you’re in the clear

and tomorrow,
they’ll gnaw on
your
soul instead.

today is the day
you get what
you’re rolled and,

sink or swim,
you have to pay.
