Sometimes I sit down for tea or coffee in the afternoon,

    to give myself balance.

My leg starts to shake soon after

so to stop my leg shaking

I do a push-up or two

and then remember that push-ups are stupid

and then I sit back down to drink another sip

but then I remember how much I dislike burning my mouth

so I sit there and meditate

but then I remember that we don’t have a microwave

so if I’m going to drink this, I’d rather it be hot,

so I suck it up and drink the fucking thing.


I am living a healthy, balanced life.
