The Parade

Standard

I sit quiet
Knees bent
Feet touching
Hands on knees
Fingers form circles

Breathe in
Breathe out
Follow the breath
And then the parade starts
Oh but a new chair in the corner
The fern from the cabin over there
How stunning.

Each display of thought
Floats into a box
That sits
Suspended in air
To my right
Save it for later

Breathe in
Breathe out
Follow the breath
Feel the calm

Drum roll
Another float
Adorned with brainstorm lilies
In the box
Save for later

Breathe in
Breathe out
Peace.

Tadum
The box goddammit
Breathe

Etcetera.
