Friday Poem

Slow down time by thinking about it.
Olympic swimmers practice swimming
in pools full of gelatin (for resistance).
My response is galvanic and halting.
Hasbro is a toy manufacturer imprinted
on our collective DNA. A feeling that the weather
is agreeable, shiny, dry, with a slight breeze.
Beethoven is on the radio accented by the highway
humming in that swishy urban way. Nothing
seems convoluted or heavy right now.
The DJ speaks haltingly, barely able
to complete her sentences. I hope she hasn't
had a stroke on the air. Items on the silver
shelf: an angel, a boxer, a baby, a metal letter "J."
Whatever else I could be doing:
I'm doing it.
