a choice

a million little things
tugging at my shirttail
but when i turn
they have vanished
in a wisp of not important
though i still feel the drag
of their incessant pleading

caught between "should" & "wish"
i brew a cup of tea
& snuggle with my son
wearing earplugs of love
deaf to the daily drudge
the circle of what matters
is in this moment

Many women could relate to this one. Nice work.
