PROPER PRERPARATION
(8/26/14)


you dread
the coming
event

but you know
that it needs
to be done

and since
being prepared
is the best cure
for any fear

anxiety

or natural revulsion

you get
ready

detailing
the smaller
elements
without focusing upon
the all encompassing
total futility
of your planned
involvement

before
you know it
you're smiling
shucking
and jiving
with the best
of them

all the while
anticipating
the welcomed relief
of the solitary
refinement
waiting
at home
in your
room

you scan
the animated
faces
wondering

am I
the only
one?
