The Writer

Writing today, won’t be such a chore.
Well, after I do the tasks and run out the door.
I’ll go to the grocer, then AT&T,
Grab a quick coffee, or just some green tea,
Then zip across town to shop REI
(I need a new coat before winter snows fly.)
Now out to lunch with my partner and friend
Before I come home and try writing again
But first put in laundry and fill the crockpot,
Shampoo the dog and clean house a lot.
Unpack from travels and clean up my space
Pull out the laundry and fold it in haste.
Oh, must water the plants and let the dog out,
Run in circles and try not to shout!
By now it is dinner I’ve not written a word,
The time goes so fast that it’s really absurd!
I put on my jammies and crash by the TV
And tomorrow I’ll write, it’s a promise to me.
