Enjoy the chaos

I wrote a poem, I think.

–x–

enjoy the chaos
expect the unexpected

sometimes it’s tragic
but most times, comedic

for example, i thought today i will meditate
started out well, but two minutes later
drrrrrrrrrrrr. construction next door

i thought i will go out for a run
nice shoes on, inspirational music ready
but it had rained last night, my usual track is slippery as hell
“Zinda. Hai tu.” just doesn’t hit as much when you’re just walking at 2kmph

i thought i’ll just enjoy some nice music in my auto ride
cool breeze and hair flying as I stare out, “Afreen Afreen. Afreeeeeeen”
traffic signal arrives. smoke from two stroke bajaj auto gently kisses me

sometimes its hard to enjoy chaos in real time
so then you look back at it and relish

for example, when we were vacationing in france
we reached the eiffel tower but forgot to bring our tickets
wasted at least three hours as my uncle desperately tried to find a printer shop in paris
apparently they didn’t have cyber cafes

initially, my reactions to chaos ranged from annoyance to anger
now i’m like oooh universe what new tricks do you have up your sleeve
can’t wait

enjoy the chaos
expect the unexpected

sometimes it’s tragic
but most times, comedic
