Engaging the Meatball
Another meatball tossed
on our overflowing
spaghetti-like plate of work.
Before forking into our crowded strands of work
meatball is tossed on the pile
colliding with the meatball already there
precipitating an avalanche of meatballs
in all directions at once.
If work is to really nourish us
we must say no
even when we are told,
“It is just one more meatball.”
