Frustrated, I Chop Wood - Dec. 26, 2022

maybe accountants do that

if one penny off from

balancing the books

or a physicist

when he can’t answer

the key quantum question

or the organic farmer

who forgot to cover the tomatoes

on a frosty night

writing one poem is actually

the product of many failures

luckily this universe

runs hot and cold

equally yin and yang

energy neither created

nor destroyed

So yes

I’ll be looking forward

to a warm fire tonight

And yes

this poem began in

a tiny splinter of wood
