Inertia

when “soon”
turns to “later”
morphs to “never”
becomes the tunnel for “we’ll see”
then changes to “nah it’s ok”
slowly settling into “it’s not my thing”
sprouting into “I don’t think I’m going to like it”
then tittering, “I think I might like it!”
the 1/3 second flicker of fear. “I don’t think I have the time for it”
and rages “fuck it”
sliding back into “I’ll do it when I’ve the time”
then – “I don’t even have the time!!”
even before halfway into “When will I have the time?”
final chorus coalescing: ‘But it’s something I’m not very good at anyway!”
