INVOLUNTARY JETSAM
(7/18/18)

letting go
is not as
nebulous

not as
complicated

as we
the process
sounds

first
a course
must be
charted

then
once we see
where we
want
to be

we simply
release
all inapplicable
items

those
we know

that
which we
know

over
the transom
to the chop
of our wake

not so much
a dispensing
of the present

or the
past

as a
locking on
to a future
heading

casting off
all hindrances

ignoring
the well intended
warnings
of others

their
destinations
seldom aligning
with ours

their boats
appearing to sail
much lower
in the water
