Day By Day By Day

Why does each unit add and add and then subtract away

when -- after building speed like a choo-choo -- the eyes finally open and truly see the world?

Thank you for the wind in my face, that freshness given.

Today now is my favorite holiday because we're smiling at each other and laughing at the various edges of the same joke

proving you are and I am so Real,

the Minds we make up our own minds to be.

As for the weekend, tonight I look no further than my nose -- 

tomorrow's plans may decline with the sun

while Sunday, lying down, hopes that anything lost may really be a gain.
