    why am i procrastinating: a film 

    fortune teller looked at my palm

    she said you’re holding back, why do you think that is?

    i said, what does my palm say?

    she said, it says look into the crystal ball

    i said wheres that?

    she said yr heart.

    i said im probably procrastinating because ive been dealt a long series of nos lately and im a sensitive poet and i take those things very personally and it crushes my fragile ego and my body says just curl up and die in a ball instead of trying

    she said, wrong heart, that was the heart of a coward. you’re tony pierce, look into your heart.

    and in my heart there was a party going on. everyone was dancing around or telling jokes or playing in a band or eating cake or being jolly and singing songs.

    i asked, what was the question again?

    she said, why are you dragging your feet on the ladder of success?

    i said, cuz theres poop on the soles of my shoes and im trying to get them off?

    she said, just take off the shoes entirely, we are a happy family.

    i said ok now what

    she said, rise.

    rise!
