owning this day

This heat, this glow, it blasts through the glass
upon my skin and for a moment
I feel enriched by it
the way a plant would, but soon
I realize the sun only exists
because I willed it to
and so
the heat and the light is mine
and I am to blame for it
and all the cancer it has caused
and this morning
I’ve energized myself and all is right
and it’s good
and it’s all my fault
and I feel absolutely fine with that.
