Gift Day

By Ronald Palmer

I made it to work
but my car did not.
Yet I only had to walk
half a block
in the below zero air
and the repair bill
was just a hundred

Never look a gift day
in the mouth.
No use to shout
hoarse at the plights
you are given.

The sun shines,
you can still see your breath.
