press

Gentle tap to the side of your own face

yes, you’re back in the room

tap, tap

keep it steady

like typing on a keyboard, or a pianist

learning notes

note the slight shift in reality

shifting into focus

with nothing to do with vision

lenses changing

lungfuls and pinched abrasions

 

grit your teeth and try hard to be heavy

choice is

float, or swim

sink into the cushions

if you can

 

tap the back of your hand
