This inability to pack clothes
for the journey seems less an
inhibition than a naive belief it
isn’t necessary; you are going
for sure so why be driven by
a need to be ultra prepared?

A full suitcase asks more than
it takes for peace of mind and
there is more attire than space
so who really cares if the blue
or green is a better choice –
its such a chronic waste.

Leaving it to the last minute
makes a sport of packing - the
first items in are underwear which
no-one sees anyway and the rest
is just guesswork or whatever is
clean enough to grin and bare...
