it’s a carefully choreographed dance
creative drive, obligations
if the truth be known
a question of
what I should do
or what I want to do
follow the visions in my head

prioritizing moment by moment
juggling my desires and others’
brain gymnastics
doing what's important
grasping the best of everything
it’s a carefully choreographed dance
