I asked for help from a co-worker.
His answer was no.
I didn't like that.
As I walked away, upset
lifted from the depths of my belly
predictable as the sunrise.

This captured my attention.
I watched the swirling
gusts of butterflied whirling
and giggled to myself,
"oh yeah, here's ego,
doing what it has to do"
and bam! The process
aborted, the immediate calm
shocked as well as stunned.

Where did the upset go?
It disappeared, poof!
before it had the chance
to play itself out,
the script interrupted,
unable to run in the face of awareness.

This captured my attention.
Realizing possibility
I laughed and laughed
as well as marveled.
