the world is too big and

i’m too small and short-term.

a single lifetime isn’t enough.


our direction is all wrong.


where’s the manual,

the prioritized “to-do” list,

the boxes to check off?


i don’t know where to fix my attention,

or what steps to take

to ensure that the light stays on,

that we don’t stumble too far

from where we need to be.
