see you tomorrow

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.
