Wasted energy

If I pour myself a cup of tea

I stop

Just before I reach the top

If I let the taps run to fill a bath

I turn them off

Before it reaches the brim

Slide beneath

I can still fit me

Without overspill that would need me to clean

Mop

Stop

That which is not required

Is wasted

And that which is wasted

Feels wrong

It is easy to pour ourselves out though

Never stopping

Until we are gone

Gone

Go..

 

*and it happens a lot. Pouring ourselves into endless cups or even just one, until it overflows, trickling down the side of a cheek, perhaps our own.

    • Oddly enough the more I run and the further the greater the energy I have Len. I eat pure fuel though – oats and fruit and veges and lots of water. It’s like creativity – all forms of energy – the more you use the more appears to fill the void. There is a breaking in period of course but after that…boundless
