stillness


i can only be as brave
in this position
as life calls me to be

no more
no less

it's not asked
of bravery
of late

it's just presented
sullen days
of sameness

i should be ecstatic
over such
no monumental obstacles
no challenges

maybe i'm the sullen one
maybe i should be challenging myself

ahh but i prefer
to live
at the lowest level of inertia
docile simplicity

well, for the moment anyhow
