RDP Sunday: OBFUSCATE
” We shouldn’t have gone out for dinner ” he said ” We could have used that money to
buy curtains instead.
I went in search of curtains and found some patterns that I thought looked nice
but he said
” It doesn’t make sense to get new curtains when we need new windows. “
I went on line and found some windows and I found someone to install them and he
” It doesn’t make sense to put in new windows when we need to hang new gutters “
Which he had taken down because he wanted new windows and he wanted new
curtains to hang in them.
I said lets get the gutters put up, they’re in the backyard under wrap where you left
them and he said
” It doesn’t make sense to hang new gutters when the house should be painted first instead.
So I chose found some samples and help for the work and said, ‘ there’s a better way t
do this and
he was right.
It took ten years and the work got done but somebody else did it
because by then we were long gone
lost in a forest of words
on a mountain of intentions
under a sky heavy with clouds of excuses,
