Quiet Lunch

this lunchbreak
without a phone
in sight
seems a bit constricting
but oddly
it feels freeing

a child hates the rules
he's been told to respect
then looks back one day
to find they allowed
for much more freedom
than what anarchy
would have given

the supposed freedom
of endless choices
deadlocks my mind
     steals joy
     from the moment at hand

instead of thinking
of what I have before me
     I'm anxious about
     what I could have instead

with these boundaries,
and a distance
from the Google
     this lunch is bound
     to be the best I've had
     in a while
