Counting Time

When I walk to school
a forward movement
(for the most part)
Garrison Keillor
counts the days for me
backward in time
This is the Writer’s Almanac
for Sunday October 11th
This is the Writer’s Almanac
for Saturday October 10th
This is the Writer’s Almanac
for Friday October 9th

So by the time I reach school
it is last week
when I know everything that happened
when everyone one I know
was still alive
and none of us knew for sure
that we would arrive here
today
at school on time
with a plan
that might or might not
work
