The rainy and gray
Of this late summer day
Fits my mood
Quite well, actually, and it makes me
Smile in the fullness of its melancholy.
Delicious melancholy that you can bite right
Into, and get a juicy mouthful. The un-joy
Drips off your chin. It’s satisfying to know
That the world, the weather, the movement of
The goddamn oceans are all in agreement that
Today is not an exuberant day. Today is a day
For some healthy, hearty wallowing and maybe
A smidge of reflection on what it’s like to
Be me.
