Don’t seek answers.

Don’t seek answers.

Only disappointment will answer you.

Nor seek shoulders to lean permanently on-

They’ll only tremble and shake when it aches.

Instead, grit your teeth,

Swallow that blob; yes! that bitter dark globule of helplessness;

Let it flow down your throat;

Let it plunge itself into the crimson flow of your blood;

Let it dissolve and dissipate as tiny particles in your arteries;

Let it transform;

And let it come back to you as sweat, as tears, and as fresh bursts of breath,

As you exhale,

And heave a sigh of relief;

Letting it out,

Once for all.
