Unthinkable And Lonely

I filled today with the unthinkable

I did things I can’t ever do

I drank my gin, before coffee

Read the last page in a book, before the first

Washed the dishes before 7:00 am

My clothes were cleaned and dried by 9:00

I wrote a thank you card

Watched a man loose his wallet and gave it back

Paid for an old lady’s bus fare

I said a prayer at a church

Tipped too much for my meal

And called you…

You said hell would freeze first, but

It’s not that cold down here

Just awfully lonely
