One Day Soon – Part One


One day soon
My feet are going to leave the ground
When they do
They’re never coming down
One day soon
I’m going over to the other side
When I do
I’ll pretend that I’m satisfied
Maybe you’re right and I’m wrong
Maybe you’re winning and I’m losing
Or maybe I’m winning and you’re losing
Or maybe competition is illusion
One day soon
I’m going to call everybody’s bluff
When I do
Everything won’t be enough
One day soon
I’m going to find out how this ends
When I do
I’m going to need a few very good friends

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in various publications, including Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
