Irony is in the folded pant cuff
that keeps unrolling
as you steam it.
Actions that continue to be done
time and time again
even though the results are the same.
Failure is a tool,
but so is knowing
when failure is no longer an option
and choosing a different strategy.
Wake up and smell the coffee
because this fall
the snow has already covered the late blooming flowers.
So enjoy what is left of the morning
and practice what you preach
or end up as a stoned monument in the past.
