It overwhelms me

It's good to take it slow and breath it deep. It's good to be small, to live small, to look down at small things. It's good to examine what is mostly unseen. It's good to trace veins through papery skin, to predict the path of cracks in concrete, to inhale a stranger's curling breath, to hold something dirty and hurt in your hands and to cuddle it close.

Listen to just one song.
Know just one person.
Name your only shoes.
Claim one small corner-
you don't have to travel.

Screw multiple choice and the horror of the vast.
