Description: I (tried to) paint my nails today. For the Daily Prompt: Frivolous.
Hours pass by in focused activity
In an activity that should pass in minutes
Intensity about aesthetic and quality demands
Swift eraser proceeds though
Stubbornness is by definition unyielding
A compromising course of action is reached
Brief victory achieved despite
Intermittent frustration and exasperation
Hours again pass in caution to not undo the deed
Indeed, this very piece is constructed with tedious care and restraint
For the mission of productivity?
