Learning new-old ways to spend the day

1.
Live like a recovering alcoholic
collecting coins for the days where the future does not exist, nor past.
You are still here.

2.
Meditate, carefully
Once during a session, my whole world came undone.
You are not meant to be no-one, no-where, and no-thing.

3.
Keep the world on ‘Do not disturb’
Do not despair when it stays quiet.
You asked it to.

4.
Consume everything
No, not teas, meats, words or algorithms.
Feed yourself your own time.

5. 
Lift heavy things,
build the muscle, so you may bear
the weight of all things terrifying.

6.
Wrestle
Pinch, slap, jump
Do the work to un-numb.

7.
Wash your shoes,
the ones under the stairs
always leaving trails of sludge from the outside.

8.
Repair
Call customer service to fix the washer
that leaves all your clothes soaked in saltwater.

9.
Breathe
Practice, drawing infinity in the air,
The time is almost here.

10.
Send letters
Write to your future self
It’s finally safe to dream.
