At this moment
sitting still matters
listening to conversations
evesdropping and wondering
within and then, hearing

At this moment my coffee plant
patiently waiting
while I see thick hiking socks
and Birkenstocks
I sip, not gulp

At this moment
I don’t fret or moan
or draw deep sighs from within my being
although last week
I did

At this moment
the world’s calamities
are present
we’re more aware that the banalities
of our daily lives affect
more than ever

At this moment
I think about a melting ice cream bar
Audrey’s fake eyebrows
Lucy’s last look
Moving away and NYC
and you

At this moment
its time to work
