my body sends a clear signal to me
in the parking lot of the grocery store
i ride it out, and see it as a gesture of guidance and not
a betrayal, and understand that in that moment
growth is made and trust is built . . .
i release the idea, let it go
and sit with that feeling for the rest of the day
by nightfall peace has settled in,
i am unwavering in my decision
and dead tired . . .
