If It’s Only Breath





Think about the air you set in motion.


If it’s only breath.


If it’s more, if it’s a word, if it breaches an ear,

if the core of your breath bores

into the world body:

think about that.


Think about bringing the knowledge of waiting.

Before a full sentence, the skill of the pause.

Saying no. Or yes.


It isn’t easy.

It isn’t social.


You may begin to understand composure.

You will enjoy the mastery.
