Extended Talk, Stressless

Constriction, no thin
Relent. Mind, cages. Circles.
Disrupting minutes–
Breathe, relax.. What everyone
advises. It’s that easy.

I see parking lots,
But I make them oceans. Stand,
But I situate
by sand. Nothing around me,
but reefs, waves, persistent mist.

Painting what I want–no, NEED–
To see. Record moment to redraw
Later. Tasting different characters,
Hoping to be guided to quiet.
