poem || Peter Sherburn-Zimmer

Hi.  Today's Friday.
Yah, today's Friday.
Thinking about you.
What you got on your mind?
Get together, maybe.
Do something today, maybe,
Got mommy duty. 
Got to make plans.
Got to get out of the house.
Got to be by myself for a while.
Friday.  Yah, Friday.
Play them old records.
Hear them old songs.
Got to get my life started again.
This time. Another time,
Can't do it the same old way.
Don't know how to do it.
Got to just listen,
Don't matter to what.
The tune will pass by,
Whether you listen or not.
Got to listen anyway.
It never happened the way we thought it did, anyway,
So there ain't no reason to try to do it the same way again.
