today is for moonstone and mermaids
in soothing shades of blue
today is for turquoise toes adorned with sparkly flowers
for tomorrow is as yet unknown
tomorrow we hear the results
tomorrow we hear what’s next
as for me
I long to be
a mermaid
swimming ‘neath a starlit sky
with just a sliver of a crescent moon
driftin’ by
