Running nowhere fast
Endless hamster wheels in rat races
Won by no one
What’s the point?
Breathing in, and out.
I’m in this moment
Right here, and now.
Trying to make my world around me
Just as I need it to be.
‘I should’s’ roll around my mind;
Empty beer cans in the bed of a pick up
I’m worn thin
Saltwater taffy, stretched in all directions.
Diminished, pulled to a wisp
By everything I don’t know to not need
Don’t try to fill it
Just feel it
