too tired anymore to try
to be other than you are.

When the small talk becomes deafening.
When the tension cannot be drowned no matter
how many times you hold it down.

It may mean No more often.
It may mean more time spent in
smaller circles.
It may mean those circles have
even fewer members.

Well then,
Let’s begin.
