"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."

On a good afternoon,
I'll go outside; 
once the sharpened air
wears dull,
and sidewalks
heal from the
beatings of yesterday's
a five-day war of 
coffee swords and
briefcase shields.
Before time grows
and before the bulb of day
burns dry,
I'll step outside,
for a moment
to see the sun.

Very good poem. I love the worn out feel you give the day.
