at first glance, a word
that would get the brain started
to find logical answers

but the subconscious has its own way
of letting you know

when the breeze suddenly makes
you feel like you don’t belong there
when you no longer enjoy
the taste of the air you breathe
when you no longer believe
the words that leave your lips
when colors are starting
to close in on your space

maybe you should listen
to it
for a change
