[distracted]

so much time
yet so little
why does it feel like so little
yet waiting for my bagel
feels like eternity

I’m greedy
I want more
more
more
complain
complain
complain that I never have enough
then
I find myself sitting
scrolling
drooling over dragons and their queen
distracted
limitless distractions
attention the ultimate currency
in the age of eyes for the prize

I can’t find it in me
the strength
the will power
to all out and quit
cold turkey
tough guy
style

instead I look to habits
small wins
missing the latest episode
a book before bed
making my imagination do the work
and slowly
it builds
