Inertia By Amy Shelver

What does inertia taste like?

Looking at an empty desk while dreaming up a storm.

Going to the loo,
it’s the only thing to do.

Planning the hours of a day, with the precision of a manager with nothing to manage:
• check email
• write an empty ‘to do list’
• read book
• shuffle papers.

The art of keeping busy in a prison that pays.

• Write poem.
