Enjoy life’s banquet
adventure in consciousness
At that table? Eat!
This adventure has, at times, been a frightening.
Stand in line for well over an hour to say hello.
You don’t need an appetite to eat.
Vitality and appetite are softer and less dark.
Conquer the blues, but you can’t.
You just can’t.
It’s unsettling and I am temperamentally unsuited in a really big way.
Allowed to rest quietly and wait for strength to return.
Sit at the table, full of sweet and short-lived happiness and well-being.
A simple thing my mother taught me.
