the rush of leaving @ 09:30 pm

(i wrote this version on in the airport, still huffing and puffing... waiting to leave)

i must admit
i'm quite surprised

pushing
pushing
pushing

not all day
not for days

just two days
just part of the time

i'm really lazy

but i pushed today
pushed really hard
up and down those five flights of stairs about six times
to the bank
to flower power
with all my stuff
up and down
the trash
the ... things i wanted to keep.

my little chassidic friend gave me a ride
... i huffed
and wondered
who could i call?

someone i had served
maybe he owed me one?
i repaid him in porn
and off he went
just as Nayland's land lord pulled up behind us in a cab
i grabbed it
and asked him to wait
while i ran all the stuff up and threw it in my small little room
(the room i already imagine as mine)
organized some stuff
moved over the rest of the music onto my ipod
shut down the computer
put away the hard drives
repacked
ran downstairs
and took a breather

it took the 20+ minutes in the car to relax
brush my beard
put my hair up
put everything in my luggage
in its right place

no snags
i'm here at the airport
with still an hour to wait

HA!

and after all
i'm here.
