On forcing things forward

Making decisions
that involve other people
is frought with peril.

Even when I think
I have them all figured out,
they throw a curve ball.

Sudden awkwardness,
an unexpected response,
leaves us both confused.

And so, lesson learned:
Don't try to force things forward.
Just let it happen.

On Furious Fowl

Parabolic path,
swerving off before impact.
Toucans are the worst.

On being distracted by cold hard cash

Fuck you, ATM!
You made me insert my card,
and I forgot it.

You know what they say,
"Out of sight and out of mind."
So it's all your fault.

Seriously, why do they still make those ATMs that suck in your card anymore? The swiping kind seem much more simple and don't risk people leaving their cards behind.
