This too will pass

Today is a challenge

A day where headphones are safer

When black means white and white means rhinoceros

That’s how much sense today makes

I didn’t sign up for this see-saw

This pendulum between kind words and terse tones

Every syllable misheard

Much easier to lose myself in someone else’s angst

Screaming into my eardrums

Then find the space to release my own scream

Guilt free, against the wind

Today is day 72 in a 48ft steel corridor

Floating and bobbing about

and it is clearly a day too much

Tomorrow will be different again

As I repeat my mantra

“This too, will pass”
