UNNECESSARY TRIVIALITIES
(5/20/16)


we know
that they're
not really
hurting anyone

but when your
hobbies

pastimes

lame leisure
meanderings

delay
us

we have
a problem

we have
things to do

things to do
in order
to live

in order
to maintain
our sanity

and when
your harmless
distractions
delay us
from our
appointed rounds

there may
be trouble

contention

not
your intention
when you set out
on a seemingly
carefree day

we know

but we
have an
agenda

we don't
take
days off

look up
every once
in awhile
from your
wastes
of our time

see
us coming

see
our purpose

get out
of our fucking
way
