Today I will do everything
upside-down. If I make
a mistake, I will stand on
my head till it rights itself.

I will allow the wilting
flower to lift its head,
walk backwards through the
woods, seeing everything

behind me. I will follow
my shadow, eat the blackened
toast, lie facedown in the sand
with my palms facing skyward.

And when I am sad, today,
I will pretend it's yesterday.
