Bad Days

there's days
bad days
like today
that feel like
lakes
of raw sewage
when the best i can do
is swim for shore
with my eyes 
and mouth
shut

there's days
bad days
like today
when no songs
no stories
no jokes
no drinks
no words
no place
no sun 
no moon
no risk
no reward
no hope
no dream
no memory
no itch 
no scratch
no faith
no sleep
no tomorrow
no nothing
can remove
the stain
of the day

there's days
bad days
like today
when there's nothing to do
but lay here
open-eyed
and
wait
