small addictions


Thesis

I’m addicted to email

and the stimulation of meeting demands.

I’m addicted to well-written prose

well, honestly, to anything in writing.

I don’t pass up coffee.

I’m picky about tea.

I crave an argument, well presented.

A critique, clearly demonstrated.

Action and decision.

I need the last word and

something to do with my hands.

Antithesis

I’m addicted to long baths

fresh fruit

potatoes,

the odor of violets

medieval music

Contemplation and quiet

thought and reverie

and something to do with my hands.

Synthesis

Action and decision

Thought and reverie

I’m restless and uneasy without

something to do with my hands.
