Body

The head

the body

the thinking

the doing

easier doing

just a body

on a bike

in the water

moving.

But the brain

intervenes

the thoughts pester you

challenges

expectations

you must respond

the brain never sleeps

the dreams persist

the shortcomings

the failures

the insecurities

all there

long after the body

finds rest.

But then the body

begins to crumble

left with a brain.

Please, no.

Too demanding.

Too close

Too loud.
