The mass of things atop my desk:

A clock ahead of time,

A charging phone, a glasses case,

A picture frame of mine,

A book of jokes I haven’t read,

A plant I water twice a year,

A pencil that is out of lead,

And receipts from there and here,

A water bottle–empty now,

A stack of odd CDs,

Blue sunglasses and scotch tape,

My wallet, iPod, and car keys,

A plaque from twenty months ago,

Three empty packs of gum,

A paper full of goals to meet,

A notebook, and, for fun,

A pack of markers, tried and true,

An octopus I painted blue­­—

It helps me to remember

All the crazy things I do.

-M.M.
