What if I could give myself a bit more
A bit more care?
Maybe even a new respect
by clearing off a bit of the old clutter?
What if this alone could wake me –
break me up?
Open my eyes to whatever’s
in the air?
Find a new breath
for this pair of lungs?
New thinking for my fingers
to drum on?
A strange pathway
that’s been waiting for me to stumble onto
