How to Go On, Regardless

November PAD Challenge, Day 17.  Prompt:  "How to  _________"

easier said than done, that,
after the crepe has been
packed away, the papers in
thick beige and black notarized and
filed at the courthouse

the sun still rises and sets,
ticking away hours, memory-thick,
a stew of all those long-ago
days, though unevenly seasoned
still, nourishing enough

to give you the strength to
slap your soles against the sidewalk,
walking, always, towards some uncertain end
