sitting quietly doing nothing nick said

daddy, i know we can't be in tomorrow

we can't be in yesterday

we can be only in today

* * *

slamming down two cups of rocket fuel

i'm out the door going to work

six blocks in i really had to piss

each step a torture

only 26 more blocks to go

* * *

the steps turned into one long step

thinking of the future when i can hit the bathroom

time turned inward

i looked out amazed

* * *

yes nick i said

we can only be in the present

we can think about tomorrow

plan for tomorrow

we can remember yesterday

we can be in only today

* * *

the slow need of the bladder

becomes a metronome

marking time of the just now
