Short Attention Sp…

Where does my attention go?

I’d really like to know.

One minute I’m reading

next moment I’m dreaming

I may appear like I’m listening

but really I may be drifting.

Staying on point is hard for me

my mind’s database moves quickly.

Nothing keeps my attention

despite my best intention.

One topic will not hold.

It’s getting worse now that I’m old.

You may think I exaggerate a bit.

Just how bad is it?

Let me share so that you will know,

I actually finished this poem a few lines ago.
