Inevitablities

Calendar, clock, seasons
youth, maturation, death
functional, pre-meditated
change for the sake of change

Desire, plans, politics
she loves me not, she loves me?
Change on the fly, on a whim,
on a wing-and-a-prayer. On the lam.

Change happens to you regardless
ignoring change is not desiring
the status quo, just denial
dressed up for a night on the town

Umm, you have change for a fifty?

sitting there, reading

she replied, without
looking up

He turned on the
television, swearing
off books
