Between Inhaling and Exhaling


I never knew I’d need to teach myself

How to breathe

I never knew what could define

The betweener of inhaling and exhaling

 

Calm, retrospective, poised

As opposed to – “Err…”, “Oh…”

Rushing my words, rushing my lungs

Spewing nonsense, gibberish

 

And then the light bulb appeared

A wave of tranquility containing me

More smiling, less haste to respond

Choosing my words, lest I be foolish
