My mind wanders all too easily these days.
Perhaps since my body cannot
my mind overcompensates
and all the trips I take
are like lost moments of mine;
I can’t even remember
if I had a good time.
And when I return
from wherever it is I’ve been
the work that is before me
is even more daunting
than when I left.
Vacations, these trips are not,
and relaxation is not a result
but one thing is for sure
the cause to blame
is being an adult.
