a long time ago
i sat in theaters
with shivering water
to watch old,
cheap movies

a long time ago
i sat through
whole classes
and read books

a long time ago
i did homework
in one sitting
and did laundry
without youtube
and walked to school
without crosswords, sudoku,
podcasts, playlists,
and instagram

now i pass
theaters and make
to-do lists
that will
never be
