This Is Letting Go

It’s disconcerting
to smile and not know why

to feel like everything
is working itself out
and not controlling it

to somehow know
on a molecular level
that the universe
is what it is and
it will do what it does

and all that you accomplish
by beating your arms against
its invisible boundaries

is an exhaustion you can
feel down to your soul

and not a dent in the fabric.
