Things How They Are

by Steve Mitchell

some mornings

you smell

the air

the wet in the air

from the porch

when you step out

first thing

early

early

some days

you see

the sun

the white yellow sun

shine horizontal

through the rain

the mild rain 

not cold 

not hot

some days

some mornings 

if I had a dollar

for every dollar

I ha-

well

oh

hold on

how about that?
