  • she has a lot of things on her plate
    she cooked all at once
    while cutting her hair
    and taking a business call

    i wonder
    can she just sit on a rock
    and look out at the sea?
    or lay in a field
    and listen to the bees?

    because what’s the point of life
    if you can’t put away all your moving parts
    and let yourself feel
    just one thing
    at one time
