Brain Dump

It's hard to pinpoint,
tie down this swirling,
muddled mind of mine -
tracking thoughts bounding 
in diverse directions.

recording responsibilities
planning next projects
wrapped around worries
searching to simplify
ruminating on recent joys
pressing to be present

thoughts drive past like the rush
of a rural evening commute
flying on the freeway

I snatch them
smash them into their boxes
to deal with when I'm ready

but the darn things boing up
fracture my focus 
these Jack-in-the-Box thoughts
