Still

Blackberry rings. Demands attention
The head spins, the body tired and spent

Seven hours in constant motion
Traffic, noise, madness, commotion
Crowded airport. Terminal right in the end
Car, bus, plane, a rickety auto and my limbs
Blackberry rings. Demands attention
The head spins, the body tired and spent
Not even sighting the beautiful big grey sea
Rejuvenates a cranky and exhausted me
Then across a door, two lost puppy dog eyes appear
And I no longer want anything to be still
…Next weekend is going to be another repeat drill.
