Doing nothing

apologies to Elizabeth Bishop

Doing nothing isn’t hard to master.
I did it all day, and boy are my arms tired.
I ended every sentence with a preposition
and a hard stop. I asked no questions.
I ate two meals and went to bed very late.
Before breakfast, I laid in bed. After breakfast,
I didn’t even stare out the window. I’m looking
hard to find a transformation, but I’m
not sure where there is one. Sometimes
grass grows slowly, I guess, or
sometimes, not at all.
