“I closed my eyes and realized that my true calling in life has to be to ride an electric bicycle through the Andes.”
Mornings. In Verse.
I recited my To-Do List
Without missing a single item.
And hit Ms. Houston’s highest notes
in “How Will I Know.”
As I massaged conditioner onto my scalp,
I closed my eyes
and realized that my true calling in life
has to be to ride a electric bicycle through the Andes.
And start a non-profit
to save the Chiricahua Leopard Frog
I vowed to take more photographs.
And traced a more scenic route to work in the mornings.
As I rubbed soap across my chest
I decided that I simply must have a new coffee table.
(One of those modern ones… wood and glass.)
Then I figured out a more effective way
to lace up my boots.
‘I will call my sister this week,” I think.
‘And I will read more non-fiction.’
As I step onto the bath mat, I remember I have ten bucks in my jacket pocket from last night
…and a perfect excuse to get out of that cocktail party tonight.
in the shower
I am a genius.
