What not to do. The absence of action? Suspension of motion? Insert thoughts in freezer. Soldier through the mushroom cloud. Implode amidst explosions. It's easy with eyes closed. Easier to look. Detach and decouple. The physical from the intellectual. The sexual from the philosophical. Ripples rip you apart. Pebbles. Walk out and run in. Listen out and speak in. There are off-switches. The world is binary. Short breathes. Long pauses. An incessant hum. A perennial silence.
