If I were you

There's something about keeping a long-standing appointment, even when it has been cancelled, even when it has morphed into a cup of coffee in my favorite chair.

If I were you,
Which of course I’m not,
If I were you
These are the questions
I would ask me.
If I were you.
I sit in this hour
In the blue chair.
I do not sit
With you.
I ask my own questions,
Even have an answer or two.
I watch the birds
In the backyard.
The cat prowls
The living room.
Soon I leave to meet
With the client I told
I have a long-standing appointment
At 9 A.M.
Every Wednesday morning.
I will see him
At 11.
