declutter

let the burden fall

in your belly, the fire die down—

forget about the mess, those boxes, that pile

in the basement creeping up stairs after dark,

growing strange

 

surrender the jumble of your soul

systems unable to sustain a quiet heart

in the midst of many drums pounding

 

let the song breathe in time for you
