The Busies (repost)


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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
