fall away

Let the thoughts fall away
like marbles from your hands
clinking, rolling around
in your brain
let them go.
And when you do,
Breathe in the surrounding air
shape it like you
and breathe out dust
from which underneath you’ll find
the severe silence
of real life
measured in heartbeats
and slow footsteps
a pinpoint in the soft ground
where you are.
return to yourself.
