Maybe tomorrow

I don’t have a spare cigarette today
or an extra dollar
or even a free minute.
I need today to be mine
and mine alone.
Can’t I do that just this once?
Forget my phone and the emails,
ignore the people on the streets
and the list of things that
need to be done.
Not that I don’t care,
or think you are not deserving.
Find me tomorrow and I will gladly
give all I can.
I just want today,
one day for me
that I do not have to share.
