Not Made To Multi-Task 2011

Not Made To Multi-Task

 

To work against the weak sides

Of one’s character,

Yet keep intact the instinct for

One’s intuition.

 

Made to focus,

(Though the best

of yogis,

I have heard,

Can solve a hundred things at once;

See to, make, do –

While you and I –

Miscarry,

Never knowing why.

 

The failings of the century;

Flailing,

So wrapped up in progress and ambition,

Technique’s -ology,

And money.

[We’re in] such a hurry,

 

Not contrived to multi-task.

Encumbered in our depths,

Stretched over desk and steering wheel

We feel success that isn’t real.

 

Meant to do one thing.
