Resolutions,

The late year lingers in the lungs
emerging in wheezing coughs,
desperate expulsions,
ready to be gone, to make way for the
fresh inhalation of a new, crisp day,
yes,
yes,
replace the mouldered goal with new promise,
more durable, perhaps,
like to live another year and
be gentler to those you love,
including,
(and especially)
yourself.
