Attention is the fourth wheel on a grocery cart,
where the grocery cart is your mind
and attention the one wheel not always touching
but it can swivel in its bearings and catch,
allowing you to ricochet across the aisle
to slam your agile mind into a wall

Today didn’t work. So I left it laying on the floor, in the hopes that letting it alone would mean that tomorrow, when I wake, it will sputter and kick into gear.
