The calendar says today
is the last day of the month
if you listen to the calendar instead of
letting the calendar go
in which case
you might say
It is the second warm day in a row.
the calendar page turns.
Here is tomorrow
whether or not you were listening
to the calendar.
It might be the third warm day in a row
or it might rain
and you may get some important news or
your grocery bag may split on your way to the car.
The calendar has nothing to do with today.
