Reheating Fish

twenty seconds is not
enough time to think
about the novel I’m writing
or the poem I have to write not
enough time to call my
mom clip my fingernails wash
the cereal bowl I used
this morning just seven
seconds now wait six
almost down to five
just not enough time for
anything, really, three
just barely enough to
think of things I’ll do one
day when I have some time
