Many foolish things that can't wait...

Its time and I have things to do

What they are
These many sugared things
That must be done?

They are on my mind things
Unfinished, sitting, stony things
Keeping me up
Tapping, distracting, emboldened things
Lost chance, missed boat, frozen things

Why is it that so many foolish things that can’t wait
Somehow
Don’t get done?

I cast them out
Rebut, spurn, banish, vanquish these things
I challenge, castigate, beat
and pummel their one track minds

I listen
To their silence

I take my legs
Outside

To the trees

And make love with the wandering stars

Many foolish things that can't wait...
