folding new routines

folding new routines
into old routines is as
carefully concocted
as breaking the old –
we often try
too hard
to schedule the
unscheduled, a

who schedules

who schedules
and builds
the layering within an
onion, assembles
each membrane
with the fleshy
parts, alternating

the city has to offer

folder on why
we never meet –
the sudden draft
is mesmerizing

schedule, a surprise
to all as the city
awoke
prematurely
to the pitter-patter
of wet, little feet
dancing atop
their window units

ensure that we were
on schedule for

like soldiers
marching
over the edge
