I take it back

For a moment today
I envied the grass

quiet
uncomplicated
life

then the news came on
smacking me with death
breath
stolen

people rendered suddenly
so still

I apologized out loud
for my ingratitude
to whoever is keeping score

I take it back

bury me in responsibilities
just let the cold air bite my face
let me read another book
sleep next to him again tonight

do you hear me

I want to stay.
