The Busies (Repost) - Poem by Cretan Maineiac

Interests too diverse to
itemize, pursue, or
even
Enjoy, chronically late but
defying the
24-hour yoke, time to
work on the house but not
Home no
time to savor just
swallow SudaFed restlessness
Passing
as energy among
aging thrill-
seekers, 'got
work to
do, ' etched in monument to
multi-task mediocrity
myrmidic depart-
mental, sowing but never
nurturing
seed
Running errands run-
ning on
empty running behind &
facing unfinished decks &
'I'll get
back to you' &
kids to pick up @ day
care & add a
new room for

Plans, but none
for
Memories.
