and without alcohol 
my mind feels so much clearer
i can witness the final sunset 
and say hello to September 
with goals 
a healthier mind 
and body. 

September and back to school 
and work 
for some 
i am in the kitchen 
cooking bacon 
and busting open bread rolls

not long now 
before it is my turn.

Katie Lewington (C) 

This poem was first self-published in my book of travel poetry, titled Here Comes the Sun
