I flip away
burdening myself
with the piles that wait for me,
I waste my energy on bits and scraps of memory, melody--
distractions I reach for, drift up with--
and, hovering above, I see that I truly
am doing nothing,
except wondering where the time has gone.

As long as those scraps of memory and melody find their way here

while you're doing nothing, all is well. On another note, I do hope you've

upgraded your grocery list.

I think we all do this from time to time.
