It’s on My List

 

by Judith Partin-Nielsen

 

 

it’s on my list

of things to do that

I actually do

do because it will just

live again on

another action item agenda

or another text or report

that needs attention but

no information is

available to accomplish it,

i.e., the system is currently

unavailable to our great sorrow

or all the representatives are

busy helping other customers

who are essentially much more

needy and deserving of

undivided attention than you

so why don’t you invent

an app to help with that

and stop bothering us with

your repeated requests

with inane demands for our

time because you are

not paying us to be helpful

so just keep paying the

money and shut the fuck up.

 

 

 

Following a trail of words, mountains, spirit and tears, this writer, mother, wife and eventually psychoanalyst left Texas for Colorado in 1985. The land of the Arapahoe welcomed her and called her by name. The love of poetry, poet and high mountain valleys has warmed her heart and made her home. Freud said “Everywhere I go, the poet has been there before me.” May we keep following those footsteps on our paths thru the worlds. This contributor has taught contemplative psychotherapy at Naropa University, practices psychoanalysis, and writes poetry.
