More things to do when I’m not writing

Eat, breathe, tidy around me
communicate, make love,
sleep, defecate, become engrossed
in vices of all sorts, unhelpful
diversions that contribute nothing
to the greater good. Exercise.
Try to spend time outdoors
as well as in. I make plans. Plot
emotions. Discard focus. I save
overseas stamps for our financial
controller. Create files of paper
and reduce them. Identify
and flick away dust with feathers
dyed blue. Examine my succulents,
their progress on my balcony
the particular elements that reach them.
