To Suspend Disbelief

that is the key
to beginning
to unravel the tangled yarn
of a “mature” life,

one filled with semi-truths,
old and stale, if ever true,
certainly not currently serving.

Don’t look at the task
from the whole mass,
but pull at a bit in one
small part until a space opens.

Then work another place. Easily
almost without notice,
space joins space
until the whole is free.

Suspend disbelief…
trust…ask for help and
receive the help that is offered,
that is the key
to beginning.
