AS HARD AS HARD AS HARD

As hard as hard
as hard can get
(not really),
remember
+++++you’ve still got more cards–
+++++including laughter–
+++++and,
+++++it’s quite clear,
+++++despite your fear,
+++++you’re walking, kicking–
+++++not dead yet. . .

And things will feel much easier
with shifts to different modes of breath,
that let you get deep serious,
and also fluffy silly.

And though
stuff happens,

usually,
it falls short of disaster,
and though the walls come closing in,

I think it’s anybody’s bet
you’ll live to spin
a darn good tale. . .
and celebrate it after.
