    1. Benched

      So much of life is “Put me in!”
      And gogogogogogogo.

      But maybe best for all right now
      Is “Take me out and sit me down.”

      Put the phone away.

      Look left, as leaves freshen the Spring sky
      Look up, as clouds play across the afternoon
      Look down as ants discover discarded
      Treasures at your feet
      Look right, as runners clamber closer
      Their huffs and puffs aligned against the beating of your own heart

      Which you’d notice if you sit
      Benched.

      Take yourself out sometimes.

      The game will still go on.
      It will wait for you to wait on you.

      So take a seat. Bench yourself.
