View From A Sit-up


View From A Sit-up
By John R. Greenwood



January one 
Inhale
Exhale
One more year
The cost of Christmas cookies comes to collect
In the pre-dawn hours
Winter’s cruelest month
I lie breath-full and wish-less
All summers hard work 
Washed away in a sea of confection. 

I wrote this on New Year's Day, the same day I vowed to lose ? lbs. 
I must have put the truck in reverse?
