Come up for a breath of fresh air

What a great idea, you say to yourself

By Strange SuePublished about a year ago 1 min read

What a great idea!

You say to yourself

It used to be a phrase to make it easier to practice language

To express something more succinctly

Or a compliment to you

Continue to use your personal talents

Give the peach to the stomach that fits it

It was a timid summer day when a peach was cut open

Like between morning and afternoon

The two hard and soft parts are revealed

Like when you look in the mirror on the wall after a lunch break

You bump into a sleepy man

The furrows on his face look the same as the last time

And it looks like there is no change

How to manage the scale of silence

How to take the extra salt out of the soup

How to make the words sound warm but not hot

It was a dreary summer before the rains came.

People who stay inside start

Spitting bubbles into the phone for help

Or cover their faces in thick books and not say a word

Come out on the porch

Take off the shower cap

Drinking yesterday's yogurt
