On the day
after my birthday
we slept late
and it was fine
for once
for me
not to jump up
at the trill
of the alarm

as if the next year of my life
was meant to begin
with a symbolic nod
to keeping time safe
from others’ demands

and just
letting happen
what happens
in its own
time and at
its own pace
