the other leap day

You just know
3 out of 4
it’s (not) another day
on the calendar.
Blank space after 28
or 1 just waiting
to be scrawled over
by naughty write hand;
there’s a 29 on there somewhere,
isn’t there?

(Last vestige of day out of time.)
You tell yourself
it’s just another day
that is and is not–
such are days.

You take the quarter leap–
you bounce and dance a primal jig
among the sharks, savages and everlasting ripples.
What more can you do?
