The blank page ~
The smooth skin of your hands indicates to me you have no good stories to tell; discuss instead the possibilities of gaining an edge on the 1,000 demons you fight in your restless sleep, covered in a blanket of ash from the immolated pictures on your stove.
& when you wake, act as if you can still go on, as if it's only gravity keeping you down but keep a sense of humor while I laugh as you reproach the blank page for making you think back on how you didn't let yourself enjoy your youth.
& now life is getting old, words are wearing thin & the waves of your experience are smooth, not like a calm pond, but like shadows pretending to hands.
