Since there is so much waiting…

Since there is so much waiting in this day
why spend that time imagining instead
of reading “Jesus’ Face Appears In Bread”
or torrenting some nonsense to allay
the boredom of a delayed train? To play
a bunch of games or read some bad clickbait
is now a better thing to do than wait
some moments for a book to lay
out story, plot, and character, or use
the mind to puzzle why the wife is sad;
indeed, to banish thought is not as mad
as poetising in the bus (to choose
one thing among a million) or to sigh
and see the clouds so simply rolling by.
