RETOOLING FOR THE DURATION

When mishaps come
and your usual tools
inform you
for the moment
that with the tasks
they always do
whenever you shall ask,
they are “so done,”

take out your ingenuity
and your human spirit’s strength
to function on
in continuity,

and learn new ways to do
the things you know
you really want to do

and in the process,
in the building of life skills
make super wonder-progress,

and perhaps also manage,
if it be the Universe’s way and will,
quite incidentally
to have yourself some fun.
