Unfulfilled Ambitions

You eat a small bag
Of potato chips,
And that’s all you do.

No music’s playing.
No one’s in the room.
No book is open.

No screens are glowing.
You’re just attending
To slowly eating

The potato chips,
Attempting to give
Them full attention,

Although, as soon as
You think of that word,
Attempting, your mind

Wanders off to things
Unattempted yet
In prose or rhyme. Tempt.

Attempt. Temptation.
To handle, test, try.

You stop noticing
The potato chips
Long before they’re gone.
