Follow Through

In Tucson, Arizona, they give classes on being overtaken. You’re taught to approach it like quicksand. Not to struggle. With minimal effort, you will be absorbed into the landscape. You could be a vital part. You could make all the difference. When we are overtaken by the darkness on the edge of town, we remind each other not to struggle. I can see your shoulders twitching and I say just go with it. You sense the fear in my voice and you say We don’t have to accept any of this. It’s a choice. We are choosing. To make a vague point, I surrender completely.
