Small Stuff

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Inconsequential matters
were crucial yesterday.
Small stuff quickly scatters when perspectives sway.

Immaterial worries
were hurdles to the plan.
Small stuff plainly scurries when perspectives span.

Irrelevant dilemmas
were conflicts of the choice.
Small stuff rarely seesaws when perspectives voice.

Insignificant troubles
were major in the past.
Small stuff merely bubbles when perspectives last.

Inappropriate concerns
were central for the bout.
Small stuff simply U-turns when perspectives tout.
