The last time I was stuck

I wanted to do something about it


I left my laptop

On my desk

At my office


I gave up

I stayed stuck

The laptop became an excuse

I got distracted

And forgot

About the painful fact that I was stuck

I didn’t sit down with a pen

And a Hilroy notebook

And just pound out some words

And commit to the reality of my existence:

I’m stuck


By writing this?

On a Thursday night?

With a pen?

In a Hilroy notebook?

I’ve become unstuck
