My mind wanders unrestricted,
And, there is no place it will not go,
Including past that pile of thoughts
Of my duties, my “to dos”
Large and small
I have to tiptoe past, so they don’t fall on me.
I used to overt my eyes most of the time,
But I have learned to treat my list, as if it has a sticky film
Such that when I wander by that stack, and look up by chance,
I cannot look away from the task I see until It’s done
And, look how far I’ve started to come.
