I know you’re reading this.

Calm your mind.
Count your breaths.
I can almost feel them on
the nape of my neck.

There are ten thousand cities in my mind.
There are things darker than dragons,
stranger than faeries,
more beautiful than the sunrise.

Cast this out.
Calm your mind.
Count your breaths.

A curtain call.
a shiny globe.
a Cheshire grin,
a ginger cat.
A pitch black knight,
a long lost love,
a fleeting f**k
a bleeding cut.

Collect your focus.
Cast this out.
Calm your mind.
Count your breaths.
