ALARM CLOCK


How times have changed for me,
each morning the Blackberry plays
the song “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive”.
I’ve set it this way as a little prayer to
begin another hectic day and to remind
me to be thankful to be able to walk out
of bed and get ready for work once again.
My wife says I ought to change the song,
"You won’t like it anymore, if you hear it
every day", and I just laugh and tell her
that she should know me better than that.

Life is good! I wonder if my Droid is as musically talented as your Blackberry? :)

The end is perfect. You really have a knack for finding depth and resonance in the seemingly mundane. The tone reminds me of Frank O'Hara.
