it was one of those days

head-spinning and full-speed

where you have no supper plans and it's time to eat

and at that very moment the phone rings

it's mama to say come over for your favorite meal and cake

and right before you leave with a full belly she says here, I want you to read this

and after kissing cheeks you pull the door behind you

then step out in the dark, breathe in the cold, close your eyes with face to the sky and say thank you under your breath
