your seconds are my mintues
Sit down, open book,
Turn page, get out pen, arrange paper,
Deep breath... eyes to page...
"In this study, the researchers found
that this particular phenomenon..."
A noise, what was that?
Look up, it was nothing,
"In this study, the researchers found
that.."
Need water, get up, go to kitchen,
Pour water, go back to couch, sit down,
"In this study..."
Maybe I should do the dishes,
No, must finish,
"In this study, the resea..."
Guinea pig is moving,
Hello Tennyson, want a carrot?
Scratch behind the ears?
Get up, get carrot, feed pet,
Scratch pig's head, go back to couch,
Pick up pen, stick pen in mouth, chew,
"In this study, the researchers found
that this particular..."
Ponder what I'll fix for dinner,
Wonder if the mailman came,
Maybe I would like some music,
Look at picture on the wall,
It's crooked,
Arm itches,
Black and white words,
Hangnail, hair needs cutting,
Dirt on carpet...

I NEED TO READ,
Deep breath,
Look at clock
Heave sigh...

It's been 20 minutes.
