Tips for getting through (because something happens overnight)
InCongruity

there is nothing difficult about it just
 1
get there on time act small and think big
 2
 
 
ask with a curiosity and the enriching quality of determination, not out of panic (though it may surface like the trace of hot red from an idle itch)
 3
 
 
Intimidation is a tactic of your mind, a cornering into stasis but
 4
everything's a muscle, right? So do what you love until it hurts to love without it.
 5
 
 
People are fickle, they choose their loyalties in the style of sifting through the crate of oranges in the produce section, nimble fingers toss around the subjected citrus until they land on one which
 6
diverts in texture,
 7
but decisiveness is strength and strength is help.
 8
 
 
Listen, no one’s climbing up there,
 9
so quit that fire-starting.
