Decision Tree

The head is busier than the hands
and all things speed quickly out of control –
thoughts turning to decisions, back to queries,
transmuted to contemplation, then wrapped in tape and string
and put aside for later days;
how full can these closets become?
when will the packages burst from the door,
flood through the halls,
and trap us until each piece is
carefully unwrapped
and settled into place?
surely it is much sooner
than I would guess.
