a time for everything, and everything in its place

what would happen if all the things
we planned to get around to one day
were simply left resoundingly undone
either through apathy or laziness or
the inevitable coming of the final gong
how much difference literally would it make?
the long-discarded scarf half-knitted
those scrapbook pages left unglittered
what purpose does any of it serve?
the contents of spare rooms across the
globe are littered with the detritus of
“omg, I really must deal with that” piles of put-off
projects that if ever finished would only
momentarily clear some space I argue
for yet still more junk to take their place —
what wisdom can be learned from the patience
with which a river will polish a single stone?
