not today

not today
the first thing is to

check the obituaries
if I find I am not listed

in this log of celebrated travelers

then I suppose 

I will get on with my day
proof of life in the form of omission

and a distinct lack

of angelic harmonizing

as I make my entrance 

onto the cold stage of morning 

car keys in one hand

coffee in the other
