Waiting for 2022

Thanks to Ricardo Levins Morales for this image and all of the inspiration he offers throughout this and every year.

Waiting for this new year

new day

new beginning

like your birthday or 

the first day of school,

one more chance to 

start over

try again

get it right

this time

maybe.

Not for me

some ball dropping in Times Square

some crowd of people drinking somewhere

funny hats and horns and sparkly everything.

Instead, I write. Because I can. 

And hope. Because I must.
