incidental needs

despite the
best laid plans
obstacle
after obstacle
has this job
in a perpetual
haze of
hurry up
and
wait

a blur of
activity
followed by sitting
as the fire alarm
blares or the
power goes off
or the assistance
that’s required
doesn’t call back

the expectation
of an easy job
overtly complicated
by incessant
nagging little
incidental needs
has three days
turned into five
as the clusterbomb
reverberates
through my skull

it could be worse
but i will be good
and goddamned if
it doesnt seem
like it now
