‘Wasting Time,’ a Poem

I am still working on some stories, tweaking them, so I figured I would post this little poem I wrote a few weeks ago in the meantime.  I’ll have some new stories up sometime in the next week or so.  I had originally posted this on Facebook but I figured it would fit on my blog.  Enjoy!

Wasting Time
by Clinton Nix

Wasting the days

sitting near a computer,

with manufactured rhythms

pulsating my eardrums.

 

My brain is a network of highways,

packed with loud cars driving erratically

from destination to destination.

I have found ways to hinder the tiny travelers,

causing traffic jams for the sake of amusement.
But when they stop moving,

they also stop existing.
