slow people (stupid people)
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
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
I can feel the sweat of yesterday
like a grimy film
that I need to wash-off
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
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.
