Another Saturday

Another Saturday
I don't want
unread newspapers
magazines pile on
icy window sill

Deal with today
errands tailgate
this week's news
become yesterday's
pointless to update

Need to clip my finger nails
need a mirror
bathroom with hanging hooks
another book shelf
a good table light

This age of speed
convenience, endless appetite
do I want to reject
push back, or simply fight
the plight of overindulgence

Split time in the prism
look into a rainbow bubble
slow journalism
slow reading and eating
slow down living, go farming
