How About Today

Had we but world enough and time
Then this dawdling, baby,’d be no crime
We could howl at the moon
Marvel at the sun
Get to know the neighbors
And shake hands with everyone

When will I get it?
By now I know what I want most
Where am I headed
By keeping my options closed
Hire me, fire me
Read my resume
I’m available now
How about today?

Now try to apply to be a writer
Meet the insiders who will fight you off
When the bullet hits the marble
The arcade is at war
And no one ever knows what all the other buttons are for


Another lonely train and I know it’s bound for nowhere
and I’ll hop on all the same (etc.)
