Ecclesiastes
for M.L.R.

don't hold back
what is unhappy
what is happening or has happened
that you do not like

with time, let it run, let it fly, let it slide
allow it to glide away with the day

no need linger in dirty bath water
after you have used it
after you have washed off

let it out, let it circle and swirl
let it go down the drain

always a fresh day with fresh hours in it
always a fresh hour with fresh minutes in it
always a fresh minutes with fresh seconds in it

let go of what's spent- of what's lost

more and more life and opportunities
arriving without end

more life, more days, more nights to spend
