By John Yurgens


Once again,

Rocking in my chair

In the open air

Enjoying the late summer day

Watching the many cars

Pass by, rushing to the next red-light

What is so important?

Some reasons may be legit

What of all the rest?

No care in the air for any others, in their solo mobile transport unit

Aggressively forcing others out of the way

I simply sit and smile

With coffee, pen and paper in hand

Waiting for the time to walk three blocks to get the bus,

To my only commitment of the day

All other things are just things I’d like to do

If not completed, there is always tomorrow
