I Should Be Working Poem by William Jackson

I Should Be Working

Rating: 4.1
 


i should be working.
i have:
essays to grade,
lesson plans to write,
and a basketball goal
in pieces on the driveway
that I should have assembled
a week ago.
i should be working!
instead i am reading
other people's poetry,
thinking of oranges
and of you in my bed.

This gem works perfectly although I don't fully understand the part about oranges
