The First (Kind of Kay Ryan in Progress)

Say it’s the first day
of the month
but not the week
and you pay
the bill precisely
on the second since
the bank is open
and you like the way
Cher and cool air greet
plus they have freebies
–coffee and fresh cookies–
Is your payment on time
(There’ll be no fine?)
because it’s still
the first of the month
give or take
just not the first day?
Your dog won’t know
but might still like
the hike–he loves a show
‘n Cher ‘n cookies.
