What If

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

all along?
