Letting Go

Get a job. Walk to work. Wear a suit and brown glossy shoes. Grow out your hair. Wear black. Never wear black. Scribble poetry in business meetings. Stare out the window. Stop paying so much attention. Start daydreaming of the trees. Hum in the elevator. Smile on the bus. Take long showers. Wear $5 blank shirts. Stop reading the paper. Forget about politics. Change your smile. Smile with your eyes. Buy markers. Primary colors. Work in black and white. Take pictures. Listen to buried records. Listen to silence. Pack your bags. Donate everything. Step into new shoes. Don’t wear shoes. Try not sleeping. Leave this city. Look back. Fall in love. Break your heart. Break a bone. Watch death. Relive old things. Lose yourself. Lose 10 pounds. Lift some weights. Lose a parent. Change. Forget. Remember. Take off that necklace and replace it with a song. Follow the double yellow line. Compose a song on your roof. Night air. Tangerines and overripe plums. Touch your toes. Touch your lips. Touch your heart and break it in half. Pack your bags. Screw convention. Question everything. The answers are everywhere.
