Things don’t go the way I want them to go

It’s like I’m listening to someone

who puts me on hold


inconveniences pile up

like mail

sent to the wrong address.

I want the open road

but the negators keep saying

“stay in your office.”

Attitude is all we have


but if we keep adjusting it

to deal with reality

it pushes us

farther from our sanity

until we laugh

when we should cry

and we find meaning

in meaningless things.

Teens watch us


And I don’t blame them

because we are born to be geniuses

but we waste our time.
