"Back to normal"

Don't rush on.

There is time enough

To let down your pretence

Once in a while.


Let the dissonance sit with you;

Let the chaos of uncertainty sit before you

Just for one minute.

There is time enough.


Notice them there, these silent companions;

Notice them and do not fear them;

When your spine gives way, it will not cause the earth to crumble.

Don't rush on.


Just for one minute

Be overwhelmed.

Let the night take its course;

Let the heavens turn on their axis;

It will not so easily destroy you.


Don't rush on.

There is time enough

To let down your pretence

Once in a while.
