“Lucky Seat”
Copyright © 2014 Bill Friday

 

I thought about moving from this seat

and from the glare of the afternoon sun

as it closed my eyes in a squint

against my reflection

in the laptop screen

 

I thought about moving from this seat

and from the sting of the setting sun

as it burned itself three layers deep

into the skin

of my red right arm

 

I thought about moving from this seat

and from the warmth of all good things

that had not felt this right

for so long

to have its way with me

 

But I have written six poems in this seat

over the last two days

and I will be damned

if I’m going to do anything

to fuck this up today.
