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.
