At 5:21am I wonder if I could piece a poem out of lists.

Use nouns from the ‘to pack’ group
some crossed
some still to be accounted for
employ verbs
in the ‘to do’s’
that convey a sense
of organized

I’m like a big barge docked
but getting ready
to slowly move on out
to sea

my decks are abustle
with preparation
from my vessel
inevitable motion

surrounding waters

it’s been a while
since my lines have been unleashed
hope I remember
out on open water
that once the course is set
just cruise
