I’m good

until 6:00 p.m.

puttering in creative content-

ment

playing teacher, mother, confidante

and teaching myself

new distractions

I overload my plate

in an orgy of busy-ness

mask my gluttony

with small helpings

of surface chat

but evening always

arises

as surely as the battery on my machine of self distraction

flickers and dies

too soon

time to sleep

or not
