ROUTINE'S END
(5/1/17)

our lives
are predictable

we don't
like change

with that
entrenched mindset
however
we practically
invite disruption

discombobulation

by outside

by inside
forces
that thrive
upon dynamic
instability

forces
that are
inevitable

when they
materialize
we feel
our imagined
control
slipping

we are
distressed

we can either
lament
our situation

or we can
we accept
the fluid nature
of our lives

recognize
a new opportunity

let go
of our static
existence

ride
the wave
of uncertainty
to a new shore
on which
to stand

on which
to claim
new habits

to build
new habitats

remembering
this time around
to construct
a guest room

for chaos
