Rodak's Writings: Irresolution - a poem

X
Irresolution

I keep putting it off,
more afraid of approaching
the retail counter
than of standing before the Throne.

Afraid of watching human opinion
form like a time-lapse crystal.
Not this week, then, after all.
No.

Wait a month: new money’s coming in.
You’ll go out and do it then,
as surely as an island girl
goes down to pee in the ocean.
