Boredom

Time is slipping away slowly

Snails can slide faster than this

Tortoises dance a samba in comparison

 

I am at my computer

Thinking of things to write about

Seconds peel away like masking tape

Stuck to an unpainted wall

 

I drink my coffee and ponder

About whatever is going on

Whether to pull some words out

Or just read of someone’s suffering

 

There goes another minute

It snuck out the patio door

To join the other minutes

In a wabi sabi sort of being
