I Make Lists on My Phone

A poem by ©Christine Bode 2021

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.
