Getting on with it

and other requirements for daily life

Sometimes air can feel like water
weighing heavier than it should
and the choreography seems to be a count too fast

however you decorate your mantle, 
there won’t always be a life hack
the value of platitudes has never been consistent

Sometimes you might not recognize the source of the turmoil
and that’s just fine
neither can a surgeon do her work without an x-ray
so take the time to ask a question
to find the source
or at least inch closer to it
