They come and go, days,

each like every other, another one to come

after this one is done.

We mark them or forget them or ignore them

as we choose,

the significance of a date often lost in the daze of our lives.

Joe Louis, Dennis Rodman, the Wonder of Stevie,

and lesser mortals, entered the world on this,

the Thirteenth of May,

while Doris, on this Day, left it.

And this day will soon be that day, passed, the past,

like those who come and go or came and went, alas.

What will tomorrow bring? More of the same thing.

So celebrate this day, the Thirteenth of May,

because, unlike all the other days

this day is today,

today.
