intelligent people

are late

slow people (stupid people)

are on-time.

I have always been


but now I’m getting smarter.

As I delay the day

because I have something important to do

I never have doldrums

It’s rude

but I would rather be late, and enter the storm

than wait for the winds to blow.

Starting a movie in the middle

is where the action is.

Maybe, I’m the main character who gets executed

so it makes sense

to appeal my case, and buy more time.

I write in the early mornings

one poem

two poems

I can feel the sweat of yesterday

like a grimy film

that I need to wash-off

three poems

Inspiration is more important than getting clean

This might be true for drug addicts.

I conjure a story out of my sub-conscious

and then I break


The rain on me

is creativity

and then the words really flow.

My story is telling itself

I’m supposed to be at the library

My tee-time is in one hour

Then, I need to meet my friend

and visit my mother

Being late for things

is go go go

Life is never slow

if you are always Late.

  1. A weird new spin on things to which I cannot relate. I’m never late and have no patience for people who make me wait. What a rude waste of my time. I’m like a fireman; I have my clothes ready the night before so I don’t have to stare at the inside of my closet for 20 minutes in the morning trying to decide what to wear. I hate having to rush anywhere. I hate having to rush, period.

  2. I found this so intriguing the concept of time makes my head hurt! Also when I think back in my youth I was always late for everything now never (barring mishaps) but I get so frustrated by those who are I think I need to slow down and be more chilled ❤️

  3. I don’t know about coincidences but this… Today I woke up and started writing a poem about addiction and didn’t shower first thing in the morning as I always do. I finished writing when rain started pouring. Then you liked my poem and I found the link to read this poem in my email. I don’t know what to say!
    Also, nice poem
