“I Make Lists on My Phone” a Poem by Christine Bode

I Make Lists on My Phone

by Christine Bode

I make lists on my phone –
notes from Brené Brown’s books,
my personal shame inventory,
favourite TV shows,
who I consider myself to be,
my top 50 books,
what I want for my life,
ideas for poems about COVID-19,
affirmations,
qualities had by the guy of my dreams,
men I can remember sleeping with,
what’s important to me,
recipes, quotes,
psychic medium readings,
parks to visit for nature walks,
friends who awoke,
Christmas card recipients,
how to control emotions before a full moon,
people in my life I value and miss,
ideas for courses,
films by Jim Jarmusch, and
my bucket list.
I make lists on my phone –
that’s all you need to know.

  1. I love this work Christine. It is so complex, yet concise. Definitely pertains to the real world as we know it now.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read it and comment, Rick! I wasn’t sure I was going to share that poem, but it’s nice to know that someone appreciated it. 🙂
