Some Times

by Tyler Letkeman


Sometimes I forget for a few seconds

And think of where I’ll take you for supper

Some minutes I lean against the window

And hope that anyone, anything will pass by

Some hours I lay on the couch

And somehow end up in the dark

Some days I can’t shake the feeling

That I’m throwing good rabbits after bad

And I can’t remember if that’s even a thing

Some weeks I cut up snack apples

And then cut apples for snacks

Some fortnights I don’t even have the energy

To think of a joke about the game

Some months I forget the days

And the weeks all blend together

Some seasons I obsess over the season

And why our snow won’t melt

Some years, I’m told,

Have only been a month
