We can all remind ourselves to breathe
when the world around us bestows too much
remember when you faltered
nobody saw you but you told me
so that was kind of like
being seen if you
get what I mean
Get it, do you, do you really
care that much about being seen?
Because the world exists to be noticed
media driven, society given
we are a social media outlet for pain
each and every one of us
wake up to the music
and learn now how to play the game.
You know the adamant one
the fucking game.
whatever you want to call it,
it becomes the same,
and in the morning
we will all wake up
and begin again to roll our wheel across the carpet
in hopes the traction carries us through the room
which is actually the day ahead.
Unless, we work the night shift …
that’s another game altogether now.
