with New Year’s resolutions,
the Earth is now
closest to the Sun.
benefit from this
even those who are scraping by?
Why all this suffering & struggle,
pretending to live fat,
out of our means?
Let’s bow towards the Sun,
breathe fully, eat better, exercise,
save $, pay down debts,
make better decisions.
Little by little,
our circumstances might improve
even in a chaotic world like this,
it turns & glides around the Sun
like it was born to do.
We are all born into pain,
we carry traumas within our skin,
organs & bones; Joy is also possible.
Joy is an elixir—warming us
in a cold January day
