Creating an Index

So where do I begin?  A list of names

or subjects?  Places I have been or where

I wish to go?  Or possibly I should

be organizing things according to

their worth.  Tomato plants or Florence?  Books

or carving on a brand new pear wood block?

It wouldn’t matter what the order was.

Tomorrow I would disagree with it.

I mean I‘d be impoverished without books.

But Florence!  Even Xanadu falls short.

But then imagine living in a world

without tomatoes red ripe, garden grown.

And pear wood.  Carving pine or zebrawood

or any other wood would be the pits.

I wonder if I should create instead

a list that’s randomized; a wheel that spins

so every item has an equal chance

of coming out on top.  There’s got to be

a way to organize the clutter in my mind.
