To Be The Day - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

This seemed to be the day
They kept talking to me about—
Without eyes—without a television
The tourists and
The girls working—
The clouds making many fantasies
Up in the sky—
The moon hung upon itself over
A tiny yellow hacienda—
The light falling—
There you can see my parents
Waiting for months in
My tiny living room
For their first grandchild to be born.
