To get something
done today
that hasn’t gotten
done in decades
you have to go
through the pain
of facing that it didn’t.
Which seems like
the pain of waste –
time and opportunity.
It’s a question of
cutting your losess,
accepting two decades
have slipped past
is better than letting
it become three.
Human life is slower
than they lead us
to believe,
at least anything
that matters.
Resumes have got it
all wrong,
don’t give us any
real credit.
I quit biting my nails
in grade school.
At forty I gave
up coffee.
