Hovering

Homework follows
like a shadow.

It will not be
stalled.

My paper looms
like garlic on your breath.

It cannot be
denied.

I feel the weight
of responsibility hovering.

It should not be
forgotten.

I tell myself
to do the work.

But somehow
my fingers do not tap the keybard.

But somehow
my fingers reach for another book!

  1. Oh dear...I was going to call and suggest a shopping trip. :) Hope your paper gets done so you don't feel the weight of if any more.
