I forgot to tell you
I wouldn’t be in today and
probably not tomorrow either as
my mind and soul urgently need
to create a different sort of product
than they do for you.
I hope you understand that
this project will take more time than,
say, a doctor appointment for my yearly
mammogram. And it is so much more complicated.
Should clients inquire please tell them that
they will live without me for a day or two, and
that I’ll be back soon,
when my poem is written.
