My regulars at the cafe I work at always say this to me. How are they so sure they’ll see me tomorrow?
My name is on the schedule they’ve grown accustomed to my Monday face but that’s no excuse that I’ll be here tomorrow. I’ll fail attempting suicide for the fourth time tonight so of course tomorrow. A new customer came in today she asked -Do you ever smile? I say of course just not today try seeing me tomorrow. I pray the lord my soul to take just in case I don’t wake up tomorrow. Must be the ground espresso beans clouding my judgment of course there’s a tomorrow. Without a cloud in the sky today I hope it rains tomorrow. Would you like that for here or to go I’m already so tired of tomorrow. But my requested time-off is coming up I don’t think I’ll be coming in tomorrow.
