gentle conversation

gentle conversation

incident
bad incident
dream-breaking incident
universe-shattering incident

walk away from it
run away until
all you can do is walk away
and walk and walk

commiserate
share the pain
relive the pain
wallow in the pain

focus on the loss
obsess on the loss
bathe in the loss
cede

gentle conversation
remembers deeper than before
cede becomes seed
let’s keep on

simple food
after a fast
becomes a feast
awakening

renewed
return to community
draw back to center
run home

tell your story
trigger more stories
collect and build them high
stand on them and laugh
