one door closing is another

wise woman

I was being fired

& she said with a smile

one door closing is another


but nobody was firing her eh?

as she went on

it’s all about how you view life

& I was rapidly thinking

I wish you’d shut the fuck up

these are not wise words

I’d view life very differently

if I had money

did not need to be here

for the living it brought

& now I’d have to start over

find another who’d hire me

need me be grateful for the opportunity

so I said yeah of course

closed the door on her wistful mutterings

went out into the world

thinking saying nothing to inflame

that bad situation

those were the wise words
