Bucket List

by The Poet Darkling


Today was
one of those days;
……one of those days
………when you realize you
…………shouldn’t’ve waited;
……………you shouldn’t wait;
………………when you discover
…………………places people call
……………………“Climax;”
………………………“Crapstone;”
…………………………“Cut and Shoot;”
……………………………“‘Possum Kingdom;”
………………………………“Rest and Be Thankful;”

when you learn
these places could
………quite possibly be flooded…
or that they might be heavenly oases
having never known disaster,
and you might never
have known
or cared
either
way,
but now that you’ve discovered
that such places exist,
you contemplate,
you wonder,
and you
silently
add
these destinations to your bucket list, even though you know deep down inside that you will never, ever tick them off because your momma taught you better than to ever run with scissors.
