My Unplanned Plan

I made a plan
to make a plan
to help me not
forget the plan
that I was supposed to do.
I think it it was
a week or two
ago. You see.
I eat. I think.
I drink. I sleep.
I wake. I walk.
I talk. I wait.
I want. I need.
Then I thought.
What if I omit the crap
that somehow caught me in the trap.
Then I would have no need for plans,
agendas, missions, goals, or scans
of things that have not gone in the can
of all the things that did not pan
out. I see how free that one could be
if stripped of responsibility.
I know that I must do what's right.
So I will enjoy at least one night
of my unplanned plan and then I'll write
a very short to-do-list.

  1. A very very short to do list. Take care of yourself.

  2. I liked this! I couldn't stop bopping my head as I read it. (Don't think that was your intentions for this post, though.)

  3. Thank you Peach and Akilah. It is funny that you should say that about bopping your head, because when I write I get a rhythm in my head and I can't let it go till I finish the piece.
