If I rearrange my office
spread everything on the floor
will I be much more productive —
will I feel like working more?
If I go through my old phonebook
to delete contacts I don’t see
will I be left with any friends
to call up randomly?
If I color code my bookshelf
then again, alphabetically
will I have the time to read them all
you know, hypothetically?
If I take out all my clothing
to let my closets breathe
will it matter since on Zoom you see
just the shouldered top of me?
If I put my pen to paper and
if I don’t procrastinate
will my words come out as thoughtful–
or are they best to percolate?
Well I think I’ll clean my closet
and scatter books along the floor
I’ll crank up some good music
and procrastinate some more.
