The past few months I have been learning from Nothing, herself⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Staring at the void while she begs, ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Stay in me⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means staring out the window and crying⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means cooking and letting the energy of my body move through food⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means reading for pleasure, sometimes⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means feeling anxious to work and creating more space for nothing⁣⁣
instead⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means trusting money will appear ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing means 12 days in the gym⁣⁣
in 4 months⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The more time created for Nothing, the more bodies are able to heal⁣⁣
The more the corners of our wounding are dug up and placed out in front of us ⁣⁣
For examination ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My body craves her and ⁣⁣
my mind resists her⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I have been not working⁣⁣
I have been learning from Nothing⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Learning to respect her the way climbers respect the mountains⁣⁣
Awed⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The universe may have exploded out of Nothing⁣⁣
That’s how powerful she is⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Business⁣⁣
Is a way to hide from deeper excavation ⁣⁣
Busy ness ⁣⁣
Business ?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I suspect⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That you claim you want nothing, but you are afraid of it, actually ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Because surrendering to nothing⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Is terrifying ⁣⁣
