42 by Robin Coste Lewis


Absolutely nothing
except the growing
realization that
with or without me
it is happening.
And that for
the first 42
I thought that
it needed my
approval, my agreement.
It began a while ago.
It’s been waiting
and not waiting
I would catch up.
I am catching up
to the day
that the Sun cares
and does not care,
that with or without me
it will spin and burn.
That I should
spin and burn
