Hold your breath, count to ten.
Breathe in, breathe out; repeat 'til it disappears.
Cover mouth, neck, pick up pencil,
Write one page of everlasting depression.
Let go, iterate; breathe in, breathe out –
breatheinbreatheoutbreatheinbreatheoutbreatheinbreatheinbreathein . . .
Drop everything, release. Keep holding on.
Hold breath and count.
