It’s been a long day


Here is what I love about the brain:
How it remembers.
How it sews what soft it can
into a blanket for the nights
when I am cold with trouble.

~ Sean Patrick Mulroy, from “The Offering” in Tap Lit Mag (Fall/Winter 2016)

  2. I’ll tell you what I love about the brain David…
    How it forgets. Blank.
    So I can sleep.
    Yes, it has been a day and a half.
