She Plans to Wait

She plans to wait, she tells herself, to start
a program of improvement, picks a date
a week away: a number set apart.
She plans to wait.

She’ll do it for reflection’s mirror mate,
and lower blood pressure, and stronger heart.
She’ll leap before the effort is too late.

Accessorized, she even makes a chart,
and picks a favorite pen to tabulate.
The one idea she now thinks isn’t smart?
She plans to wait.

(Roundel)
