Doing Nothing


you’d never expect doing nothing to be
really time-intense – existing testimony
confirms in this case too many moments
spent avoiding activity vanish without a
trace – and too rapidly for novel ideas to
vaguely replace them; in doing nada one
attains seriously dislocate art-forms of
what nirvana is thought to be 

where the time went should be a bonus
one spends wisely, but after the event –
yet if the expertise reached subliminal
state an occasion never eventuated; it
is a curse we superior shameless see
in work as an avoidable frustration
