what I'm doing

bubble wrap, grab the tape
toss the flowers, pack the vase
pack the pictures, make some lunch
sort through old clothes on a hunch
throw away a bunch of things
an old stained shirt, some plastic rings
my life is chaos, my life feels hexed
tape up the boxes, what to do next?
decide which toys just have to stay
and swhish the other ones away
take off the sheets, our mattress sags
it's time to nap in sleeping bags
what is needed, what is not?
evaluation is my lot
yes, time to eat leftover food
nutella surely makes my mood!

all the pasta bought in bulk
makes kids smile and not sulk-
good bye to the net and my favorite sites.
make a call to cut the lights
box up the PC, hang up the phone
(starts to make one feel alone) -
moving's fun, moving's neat!
I think I need something sweet
Hmmm. There's a Snickers in the fridge...

I'll be back later.


  1. Yea. Moving's fun. I guess :)

    Okay maybe not, but having a new house, that's fun.

  2. Can't wait to hear from you again! Good luck with everything!!!

  3. I just moved to another state last month. It was not fun. Hope your move goes smoothly.

  4. I hate moving. I got tense just reading your poem I've done it so many times. Good luck over the next bit!

  5. Ooo. I hope things are going well. Good luck!

  6. Oooh, that takes talent - to do it all AND write so creatively about it. Now you just need Billy Joel to put it to words...
