ten minutes

i only have ten minutes here
before i change the laundry
and make dinner
and exist in the real
if i talked about the news
i would just be adding
outrage to the cacophony

instead i will tell you
of how i relish phrases
like artisanal pringles
and rejoice in the return
of the day to day
and my gratitude
for my peaceful corner
of this desperate world
where i can laze in the sun
for an hour in the pool
with the little dude

and now to change the laundry and eat
and now to exist in the real
