solitude

Pay attention.
Not just for a moment, while looking up from your __________.
Put it down and really listen.
There are no pretenses here; there is no one to pose for.
Allow yourself to walk for hours.
Remember what it feels like to be bored in your own thoughts.
Lose yourself in repeating visual rhythms; listen to what you thought was silence.
I hope you find what you’re looking for,
but part of me hopes that you’ll find it somewhere else.
This is mine.
