Poem of the Week-Marking

Marking time

Hoarding numb emotions

Exchanging time capsules

Rushing through the newspaper

Holding back from volunteering

Saving the new Nordstrom shirt for

A special occasion

Walling up the hidden anger

Promising to masticate slowly

Agreeing to concentrate

Stop distracting texts

Halt E-mails

Discontinue Instagram

Break secret websites

Sojourn Facebook

Prevent Rotten Tomatoes and Metracritic

From making my choices

Retire from obsessive habits

Rest my stage

Phase out cheap patterns

Mark off
