misplaced

So how often do you open your email account
in order to do something particular
(to send someone a message or respond to one),
but upon opening up your inbox,
you notice something else
(a message for which you’d been waiting,
or an unexpected contact)
and so you address that,
and then you shut down—
not only not having done what you intended to,
but thinking you have …
because that’s what you set out to do!

A mind’s a terrible thing to trust.
