Shut Up And Dance With Me

Today I co-create the city, releasing
the cynicism that insists

I don’t matter. Look, every tiny
child knows their essential part

of this song. This thronging populace
has a rhythm and beat that can sweep

a country soul away from her center.
Settling in and embracing is a new

way to flirt with the stress–
so much energy, the waves pounding

and emotions flying in through the
aether. Once I would have reacted

until I eventually found a way through
or fell into the well of triggered

panic. Last night the full moon sang
a song of being fully present.

Today I know I am plugged
into the matrix, and what is in

formation is my word mattering,
as I enrich the world.

Inspired by: Walk The Moon’s song, Flirt, Cynicism, Eventually, Enrich and the Saturday Stream of Consciousness prompt: “co-“. (The prompt is to write stream of consciousness with no editing.
