How I live

I tried to live in the present,
but the present was always passing.
I tried to focus on the living,
but like the present, the living
kept passing away.

So I pet the cats at the shelter.
I drink iced tea at Tea Zanti,
and I let myself write badly, because
I’ve already tried to write well
and that’s like trying to live right now.
