The melting poet

I don't know what I am doing with poetry.
I don't know why I can't write this looong essay that's already overdue.
I will miss my boyfriend when he goes away for three weeks to Florida.
I have to arrange a job interview this week, sign my tax forms, arrange an out-of-province application for school, buy cat food, buy people food, finish my laundry, pay my car registration (that is 8 months overdue. I dread the late fees), send a thank-you letter for my recent bursary award, send a thank-you letter for my recent English essay award, reformat my computer (damn virus), exercise (it's been a month!), re-sole my shoes (kidding), redo resume for job interview Wednesday, work for professor at least 6 hours by Friday, feed the cats, refill bird feeders on back patio, send in passport application, return library books, mail dress to 6-month old niece, arrange appointments to rent room by next SUNDAY.

I can do it. I am a melting poet.

all you can eat is cheaper
than
all you can want
