Just a moment

Reposing professionally
the trick
is in the propping of limbs
and the animation
of an idle mind

It’s a seesaw of eyes
and the brows above them
accidental skepticism
paired with faux concentration
furrows that need no plow

A meditation on minutes
the seconds
that slow down
as a new task approaches
we give up on time
