XIV – On Days Slipping By


Devious Bloggery

Should you ever find yourself
In the most fortunate position
Of riding in a glass elevator
Please take a brief moment
To attempt this experiment:

Take the elevator up to the top
Push the button for the bottom floor
Place your head against the glass
Focus on the scene below
The ground rushing up to meet you

Hold your breath
Or inhale slow and deep
Consider the descent

The rising feeling
In the pit
Of your gut,

The effortlessness
Of the fall

The smoothness
Of it all,

Now:

Try to stop
That elevator
From its fall,

Using nothing
But the power
Of your mind.

It won’t work
Give it a shot
Nevertheless



Now try again,
But this time
Close your eyes…
