Sonnet 1: Anniversary

By Aurin Squire

This is one of those awful poems of sobriety

We're allowed one every once and a while.

October 15th is 2 years of piety...

well, not quite. But I say so with a smile.

That's 730 days roughly, approx 16, 120 hours

Around 967,200 minutes etceteras mounting

58,032,000 seconds up on a tower

Infinite offers, flirts, suggestives declined but....who's counting?

Do I feel stronger?

Am I a genius yet?

Oct. 15th comes much longer

Each year it's easier to forget

And I guess that's progress, not perfection:
A modern man learning to control his own erection.
