It was there all along. And everything waited and everything remained. Sometimes you have to retreat with another to remember to remember that existence exists beyond love affairs and sweat. These hours are fleeting; so how do you want to suck on them to arrive at the strongest taste.
Sometimes you have to give it up. There are only so many
memories minutes in a day. Ration the tears, the swallows, the gallops of gluttony. Some don’t come back. Most will never return. When you feel something drip on your head, it may either be a pigeon’s exit wounds or a reminder to look up.
The only thing you really need to do today is breathe.
because sometimes alarm clocks grow thirsty off drained batteries & lose their voice
because the sun can be manic depressive or obsessive compulsive & feel the need to wipe the clouds away first & that can take all day
because it isn’t as easy as just excreting breath/ sometimes the breath needs to be bullied out
because sometimes others tell you to remain in bed or that you aren’t needed but they just haven’t seen the power of your body plugged in
because you made it through yesterday & last year & that episode when you attempted the power of nooses and sharps
because she loves you and will notice
because your food will spoil
because your plants will miss you
because there is just something about this day that needs to be seen by you
