The breeze blows into a headwind
clearing old celebrations
out of corners and off porches
as the full moon drifts dayward.
Time for the nitty-gritty
moments and mementos
and head-scratching yawns.
The beginning of the year
feeling is beginning to fade
as the last football games
leftover from last year
end most diet resolutions.
The Chinese New Year
is on the horizon
and soon all the glitzy cliches
and wisdom of the ancients
are bound and buried together.
Just another gray day sandwiched
between thawing sunshine and head-fog.
Enough of using this closet-cleaning energy
and time for a much needed nosedive
into the pages of someone else’s closet.
