Mindsweeper

I’m busy
I’m so…busy

      What did you do Saturday?
Well, I got some hiking boots at the store
      Oh, you’re going hiking?
Next month—
      Oh, cool

I’m here
I’m just…here

I sent the contract
I wrote a new essay
I made lunch

Now what?

The gym…done
Run?…with no one

Safety and flourish
Table for one
This mental stretch
The enlightened One
