Much like the position you discovered together
with one foot tip-toeing the floor and their palm
having to cradle your skull, do what makes you feel good.
An organized focus on your health will make you feel good,
but given your circumstance, peeling the foil off a Dove
chocolate morsel will absolutely have its way with you:
Adjust the spotlight of your mind’s eye, guiding it away
from your nightstand and cigarettes, showcasing instead
the gleam which envelopes each of three carbohydrates
inside. Welcome the halo spinning within you as a single
foil flap ignites the space between your skin and fingernail.
Pull back. Adjust. Again, pull back. Like a fortune teller,
seek and adjust and pull and reveal. Spill each piece.
Empty the bag. Empty your heart.
Pull. Adjust. Seek. Reveal. Spill. Empty.
