We Are Only Given This Day

What if we could place a meal on the table differently and then hear, finally, the simple thingslaughter, rain, and the smell of the sea? What if the dark is spilling the impossible blue on each one who passes by, breaking our hearts open until we see that everything gleams with lightuntil we are no longer able to pass by like a dream? A single sentence, a single word keeps turning life over. We are only given this day.
