Passing Time

How many options do you really have
at 6:30 pm
I’m thinking of two,
the usual –
happy or sad
The sun sets
my mood follows
But not easily
there is a hesitation
here and there
the thought of options
of choices
of not giving in
this time
Deciding instead
to smile at things
that look harsh
and feel heavy
It’s hard work
and sometimes the sun sets
before I can muster it
and sometimes it sets
and I’ve been beaten
and sometimes it just sets
without my notice
while I’m distracted
from passing time
And those are sweet reprieves.
